Bruce Fischl, PhD, is a Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Laboratory for Computational Neuroimaging at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging. A leader in the field of image processing and analysis, he has spearheaded the development of a range of innovative techniques to aid in generating models of neuroanatomical structures using MRI. Not least: In the late 1990s, he and his group introduced the software suite FreeSurfer, which encompasses a number of tools to aid in the analysis of data from the highly folded cortex. Today, the software boasts nearly 33,000 active licenses, with users around the world applying it to a host of basic science and clinical problems.
