LSUS Professor Contributes to the Invention of UVP
October 06, 2010
Dr. Urska Cvek, Associate Professor of Computer Science at LSU Shreveport, is one of the inventors of the Universal Visualization Platform that has recently been patented by University of Massachusetts Lowell.
UVP contains a framework system and methods for connecting a multitude of software tools through a plug-in mechanism that dynamically loads the tools and data through a linking mechanism. This mechanism tracks sessions and records the history of operations a user performs.
For this achievement, Dr. Cvek was awarded the Distinguished Researcher Award by the Louisiana Biomedical Research Network, and her collaborative work was selected as the representative project from Louisiana to be submitted to the National Institute of Health/National Center for Research Resources as a "Cutting-Edge Science Advance."
Dr. Cvek’s core contribution to the invention is the work on cluster comparisons and understanding results from clustering using multiple algorithms and parameter settings as applied to biomedical informatics, which she continued to practice at LSUS and LSU Health Sciences Center- Shreveport after receiving her doctorate from University of Massachusetts Lowell in 2004.
