Speaker: Christoffer Nellåker, Research Fellow at Big Data Institute at University of Oxford, UK.
Title: Modelling the Placenta from the Bottom-Up: Digital Phenotyping of Human Placenta Histology from Cells to Tissues to Organ
Dr. Nellåker’s group is translating the latest developments in computer vision and computational biology to answer biomedical questions and deepen biological understanding. Broadly the group works with deep learning approaches for image analysis, histology, spatial transcriptomics, and morphometry phenotyping. We apply these through multidisciplinary collaborations with clinical genetics, clinical pathology, clinical microbiology, physics, engineering, genetics and women's and reproductive health groups around the world.
