Presenting on behalf of the Biomedical Imaging & Therapy (BIT) Research Theme.

RESEARCH

Our main research theme is quantifying and mining the rich information present in cellular images to yield biological discoveries. We work on high-throughput projects (100,000–1,000,000 images) probing a variety of biological processes and diseases of interest, with a special interest in psychiatric research, infectious disease, and cancer.

Recent projects include the identification of genetic regulators (glioblastoma differentiation, breast cancer cells’ response to heregulin, meiosis) and chemical regulators (leukemic differentiation, mitochondrial function, tuberculosis infection).

No sign-up required. For more information contact the iBEST Coordinator, Imran Sheikh (ibest@ryerson.ca).
