The Communications Engineering Branch (CEB) is part of the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications, an R&D division of the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Our mission is to conduct research and development directed toward mission-critical tasks at NLM and NIH, such as cancer research, document delivery, digital preservation, and automated ways of building resources such as MEDLINE®. All software products developed by our researchers are freely available.

A major focus at CEB is image engineering, both for biomedical as well as document images. This includes research in image processing, compression and enhancement. Other research is targeted toward text and data mining. Our work in these areas employs machine learning and natural language processing techniques. Scientific papers by staff appear under publications.
