Interaction Design (InDe) Lab

The InDe Lab investigates how novel interface technologies can be applied to change the way we think, work and behave. We combine methodologies from interaction design, human-centred computing and design cognition to explore new approaches to learning, participating and creating. Our current research focuses include tangible and gestural interaction, crowdsourcing, citizen science, and computational and cognitive studies of creativity.

Laboratory of Information Integration, Security, and Privacy (LIISP)

The mission of the Laboratory of Information Integration, Security, and Privacy (LIISP) is to add value to the university, community, and society through innovative educational programs, research and development in the areas of information integration, security, and privacy. We aim to be one of the leading academic institution for research in information integration, security, and privacy and provide innovative education and training programs in information integration, security, and privacy.

The Health Informatics Lab

Health Informatics, also known as medical informatics, is the interdisciplinary, scientific field that studies and pursues the effective uses of biomedical data, information, and knowledge for scientific inquiry, problem solving and decision making, with the goal of improving healthcare systems and human health. The data and topics that researchers in health informatics deal with are more clinical and public health driven, whereas in bioinformatics, scientists focus on data at molecular and cellular levels. The health informatics PSM program at UNCC is a joint effort between the College of Computing and Informatics (CCI) and College of Health and Human Services (CHHS). Besides the educational program, three of our core faculty in CCI, Dr. Mirsad Hadzikadic, Dr. Yaorong Ge and Dr. Lixia Yao also set up the Health Informatics Lab to actively research on projects including mining social data for drug repurposing, assessing unmet medical needs in the US, radiation therapy decision support, clinical data integration and data warehousing, cardiovascular imaging ontology and informatics platform development, and neural and behavioral modeling.
