CCB Summary: The Center for Computational Biology (CCB) studies the dynamic properties of biological shape, form and size using novel mathematical algorithms and advanced computational techniques based on statistical learning, spectral analysis and differential equations. CCB develops, validates and disseminates data and software tools for modeling, analysis and visualization of shape across the spectrum of space-and-time scales. These new methods are applied for longitudinal studies of brain development, HIV/AIDS induced dementia, schizophrenia, multiple sclerosis and animal brain models for health and disease.
