Research description: Dr. Shin is studying complex computational methods in biomedical domain, including computational morpohoproteomics, digital pathology and computational cancer biology.

Currently he is working on computational methods for determining the identification of antibody panels for the classification of lymphomas that will provide an optimally efficient diagnostic path. This research direction, reffered as "morphoproteomics", is a part of a new emerging subfield of pathology described as"systems pathology". The work is done in collaboration with Drs. Arthur, Shyu, Korkin and Popescu.

Dr. Shin has also been working in other areas of biomedical informatics. He collaborates with Dr. Mariuis Petruc on studying factors that influence the quality of radiology imaging investigations using computational models.  Another collaboration between Dr. Shin and Dr. Petruc is the study of telemedical methods to encourage positive behavioral patterns in type I diabetes pediatric patients, where they are co-principal investigators. The research is funded by the Children's Miracle Network grant. For this study, Dr. Shin has designed a long range wireless transmitter device that allows blood glucose data to be remotely sent to the processing center where they are analyzed using machine learning and computational intelligence methods. The telemedical methods encouraging positive behavior in diabetes patients includes system initiated reminders and alerts that are generated based on complex analysis of blood glucose, Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and other measurements and delivered to patients using cutting edge Text-To-Speech and Voice-over-IP technologies.
