James Glazier held faculty positions in physics at the University of Notre Dame and visiting positions at the University of California Santa Barbara, the University of Western Australia, the University of Grenoble in France and Tohoku University in Japan before coming to IU Bloomington. His research focuses on applying physics-based computer simulations to understand embryonic development, developmental and chronic toxicity, and developmental and infectious diseases. He also applies these simulations to develop and optimize disease treatment.
He is an active member of numerous international research collaborations between experimental and computational biomedical scientists. He leads the collaborative development of the open-source CompuCell3D multi-scale modeling environment. He actively disseminates these methods, teaching an annual virtual weeklong workshop on multiscale virtual-tissue modeling. He is director of the Biocomplexity Institute at Indiana University.
In 2016, he became one of the founding members of IU’s Department of Intelligent Systems Engineering — the first engineering program at IU Bloomington. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and the Institute of Physics in London and has served as chair of the Division of Biological Physics of the American Physical Society. He co-leads the IMAG/MSM Working Group on Multiscale Modeling and Viral Pandemics and is active in the development of infrastructure and community for the creation of biomedical digital twins.
