The Computer Graphics Laboratory at UC Denver was established in 1999 as an interdisciplinary research lab. It is dedicated to the development of interactive computer graphics and scientific visualization techniques. Current research topics include physically-based modeling, animation and interaction in virtual environments with an emphasis on medical and bioinformatics applications.
The lab is equipped with state-of-the-art graphics equipment including the latest GPU-powered workstations, stereoscopic 3D glasses, high-resolution digital video cameras, capturing and encoding devices and multimedia software.
This lab's research activities are unique at UC Denver, and they are recognized by international science and engineering communities. Previous funding agencies include NSF, NIH, Alzheimer's Association, Microsoft, SGI and CASI. The lab has published many peer-reviewed papers, which can be downloaded from the lab Web site.
Based on the research activities, lab director Dr. Min Choi has received the Research and Creative Activities Award from UC Denver, an NSF Career Award from the National Science Foundation and Best Paper awards from international conferences. He has served on NSF and NIH grant review panels, and he has been invited to international conferences as chairs and plenary speakers, program committees and editorial boards on numerous occasions.
