"The NIH Career Award is a training and research award for promoting interdisciplinary breast cancer research," Meyer-Baese commented. "For an electrical engineer like me, it is crucial for acquiring medical training and expertise in order to work closely with physicians and improve breast cancer detection techniques."

Meyer-Baese has been working in computer design mammography for 10 years and said she expects to work on this specific project during the upcoming five years.

Meyer-Baese holds a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering with specialization in pattern recognition and has been at Florida State since January 2001. She has accomplished much, such as writing the monograph Pattern Recognition in Medical Imagining, the first published book in its field. Her contributions to research and developing techniques continue to flourish and delight those who share her interest.
