Program:  Dr. Ioannis A. Kakadiaris, Director of Biomedical Imaging Sciences
 
Biometrics, is this where the future generations will use to help eliminate identity theft? Recognizing and understanding the human nature of emotions and behavioral patterns can be learnt through facial expressions.  If biostatistics can identify a human physical appearance, can the same technology be used to help identify and reduce cardiovascular defects and illnesses? With the age of life expectancy increasing, people are living healthier and longer lives.
