Designed especially for neurobiologists, FluoRender is an interactive tool for multi-channel fluorescence microscopy data visualization and analysis.
Deep brain stimulation
BrainStimulator is a set of networks that are used in SCIRun to perform simulations of brain stimulation such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and magnetic transcranial stimulation (TMS).
Developing software tools for science has always been a central vision of the SCI Institute.

Dr. Timmins received his B.S. and Ph.D from the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University in 2005 and 2010, respectively. The latter under the supervision of Professor James E. Moore, Jr. During his Ph.D studies, Dr. Timmins was a Whitaker International Fellow working in the laboratory of Professor Stephen E. Greenwald at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry. He conducted postdoctoral training at the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology (Profs. Don P Giddens, John N. Oshinski) and Division of Cardiology at Emory University (Prof. Habib Samady). Prior to joining the University of Utah, Dr. Timmins was an Instructor in the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Emory University from 2015-16.

Research Interests

His research focus is in the area of cardiovascular biomechanics. Key research topics include the development and validation of computational frameworks to characterize the in vivo mechanical environment, evaluation of the structure-function relationship in vascular tissues, and medical device design and optimization.
