As an emeritus professor in biomedical image analysis, Bart ter Haar Romeny uses Mathematica to design brain-inspired image analysis methods for computer-aided diagnosis. He is an enthusiastic teacher, and introduced Mathematica as a design tool in the curriculum for all students of his department and in most projects in his group. He advocates that Mathematica is ideal for designing innovative algorithms and for "playing with the math." His PhD students van Almsick, Duits, Franken, Florack, Janssen, and Bekkers substantially contributed to the Mathematica packages on brain-inspired computing. He co-chaired with Markus van Almsick the International Mathematica Symposium 2008 in Maastricht and taught a popular national course on biologically inspired computing (book written in Mathematica), which was thrice awarded the BME Teaching Award. In 2013 he received the Mathematica Innovator Award.
