Maryland Research in Informatics & Analytics Development Laboratory (MYRIAD)


The Maryland Research in Informatics & Analytics Development lab (MYRIAD) is an engineering and clinical software development team embedded in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. The lab's mission is to work closely with clinical users to understand, develop and build the next generation of workflow and analytics software for use in medicine.

The team sees as its core strength an ability to understand and translate clinical requirements with state of the art technology and software-based tools. The lab is currently funded by several grants, as well as by commercial support. To learn more about the team, and read about current projects, please see below:
