NJ GSET is a unique summer residential program hosted at Rutgers University for high achieving New Jersey high school students. One component of the program focuses on enabling students to engage in a collaborative research project with a mentor.
My research project in Autonomic Cloud Computing involves using cloud computing to optimize medical research. We developed a web application, which we named CompariCell, that allows medical professionals to submit an image of blood cells to be compared to a large database. The result of this process helps determine if the cells in the submitted image contain are cancerous.
