Daniel Szecket on developing software for unraveling cancer through digital imaging microscopy


Quantitative Imaging Systems VP of Design Daniel Szecket talks with Steve Waskul about developing software for scanning tissue samples in 3D that can help revolutionize cancer research and pave the way for new treatments.

Daniel describes himself as a tinkerman. He likes to “mess with things”. Prior to the interview this experimental side led Daniel to wrapping his neck with green tape to see if that could be keyed out to give his head a “floating” appearance during the interview. You can see in the interview that for a quick attempt, he did a pretty effective job!
