Conference on Modern Challenges in Imaging
In the Footsteps of Allan MacLeod Cormack
On the Fortieth Anniversary of his Nobel Prize

August 5-9, 2019, Tufts University, Medford, Massachusetts

From 1957 to 1995, Allan MacLeod Cormack was a University Professor at Tufts. His pioneering work published in 1963 and 1964 provided the mathematical foundations of computerized tomography (CT) and thereby the first practical method to “see into” an object without physically breaking it open. Along with the engineer Godfrey Newbold Hounsfield, he won the 1979 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for this work.

40 years later, the international conference on Modern Challenges in Imaging will honor the achievements of Tufts only Nobel Laureate and keep his thriving legacy up by gathering top international researchers in mathematics, engineering, science, and medicine.
