Ramsey D. Badawi
The Badawi Lab is focused on translational imaging, with emphasis on PET and other radiotracer techniques. Translational imaging is aimed at transferring (“translating”) research imaging methodologies to the clinic and human use. This requires a multidisciplinary approach and the Badawi lab has developed multiple collaborations with other investigators.

Ecological sanitation and resource reuse; Pathogens and micropollutants; sustainable international development; water quality and reuse.
Professor Matt Bishop’s research area is computer security, in which he has been active since 1979. He is especially interested in vulnerability analysis and denial of service problems, but maintains a healthy concern for formal modeling (especially of access controls and the Take-Grant Protection Model) and intrusion detection and response. He has also worked extensively on the security of various forms of the UNIX operating system. He is involved in efforts to improve education in information assurance, and is a charter member of the Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education. His textbook, Computer Security: Art and Science, was published by Addison-Wesley in December 2002.
