Summary Developing computational approaches to analyse development and disease

Project Details

The use of complex 3D tissues derived from stem cells affords many significant advantages for the study of development and disease. The analysis of the resulting tissue is, however, complex given their size and cellular complexity. Advances in imaging technology, transcriptional profiling resolution and machine learning provide the tools that should allow high throughout characterisation of such complex structures.

This project aims to develop novel computational approach to handle high content image datasets for the interrogation of disease mechanism. The applicant should have some basic understanding of computational biology and/or imaging.
