In February of 2018, 3D scanning and printing experts at NYU’s LaGuardia Studio arrived — in a blizzard — at NYU Langone Health to scan the face of 23-year-old William Fisher, who was donating his face. The Studio was tasked with creating a highly-detailed, lifelike mask to replace the face Fisher was giving to another, California resident Cameron Underwood. This is the story of the 34 hours Studio staff spent as part of this groundbreaking procedure.

The November 18, 2018 episode of ABC News’ 20/20, titled “Brave New Face,” highlighted LaGuardia Studio’s contributions to a face transplant performed in January of 2018 by Eduardo D. Rodriguez, MD, DDS, chair of NYU Langone Health’s Hansjӧrg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery and director of its Face Transplant Program. Staff at the Studio scanned […]
In the 1800s, Colden’s Liquid Beef Tonic was sold as a cure for alcoholism. It’s primary ingredient? Alcohol. This may not be the sort of thing one expects to learn at an event dedicated to discussing data visualization and research. DH+Data Day is a testament to the expansions in who uses data, what they use it for, and how it’s analyzed.
Researchers1 from the NYU School of Medicine made use of NYU High Performance Computing (HPC) resources and Google’s deep learning artificial intelligence algorithm to advance the understanding of lung cancer and mutations in tumors. Using Google’s Inception v3 (an open-source algorithm) and the HPC neural network, they were able to accurately differentiate between two different […]

Using 3D Printing Technology to Explore Identity Heather Dewey-Hagborg, an ITP alumnus currently making waves with her “Chelsea Probably” art installation, was recently featured in a New York Times article about the Seattle Art Fair and women in the art world. Dewey-Hagborg’s project, which uses DNA from Chelsea Manning to create potential facial appearances, which […]
Rice is the staple food for approximately 50% of the world’s population. The rice of the future must be cultivated using less water, less land, and under severe environmental stresses. Mapping the rice genome is a step toward attaining these goals. Researchers at NYU are using high performance computing resources to achieve the task.
