Profile Summary

Marius Staring is a professor of Machine Learning for Medical Imaging, and vice director of the Division of Image Processing (Dutch abbreviation LKEB), at the Leiden University Medical Center. He holds an MSc degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of Twente (2002), and a PhD degree from the UMC Utrecht (2008).

He and his team develop generic machine learning approaches for automated image analysis, and apply these in the clinical and life-sciences. He has worked on machine learning for disease classification and staging, for segmentation, image registration and uncertainty estimation. In collaboration with the Department of Radiotherapy and others he explores the area of adaptive radiation therapy (photon as well as proton, CT as well as MRI). Together with the MR physics group and Philips he has developed image reconstruction techniques using deep learning, currently available in Philips MRI scanners. Image registration is a focus point in his research, developing fast and robust methods that render this technique usable in a time-critical intra-operative setting.

Marius Staring is an Associate Editor of IEEE TMI, and a member of program committees of MICCAI, IEEE ISBI, SPIE MI and WBIR. He is a VENI laureate, and teaches students Technical Medicine on image processing. Open sourcing his methods has been a common theme in his career, exemplified by the image registration package Elastix, see
