Finding and developing relationships-among people and data-sets David Damiano apart as a teacher and a researcher. Over the past year, he and his students have begun a new study of pre-clinical images of cancers.
Damiano and a student researcher are analyzing high-quality images of their test subjects-mice with tumors-provided by Holy Cross alumnus and mathematics major Jack Hoppin ’98, who took a seminar with Damiano in his junior year on the Hill. After earning a Ph.D. at the University of Arizona in applied mathematics, Hoppin went on to co-found inviCRO, LLC, which provides the growing field of molecular imaging with information processing and data analysis. Now, 15 years after his Holy Cross graduation, he is helping Damiano and his current students to be actively involved in work that offers new knowledge to the medical community while providing important research experiences and career opportunities to students.
