Gaining Functional Immune System Insights through the Application of Machine Learning on Immunofluorescent Microscopy Images

The Center for Research Informatics in conjunction with the Master of Science in Biomedical Informatics launched the Computational Life Sciences Seminar Series (CLSSS) in October 2017. Join CLSSS for a discussion with Dr. Vladimir Liarski, Assistant Professor in Rheumatology, about his work on classifying the anatomic structures of human kidney using digital images and machine learning. This research introduces a method to objectively segment and classify the these images using Python to detect glomerular and non-glomerular areas. The methodology used to train the program to classify tissue and the benefits for diagnosis and treatment will be discussed. Dr. Liarski is a recent graduate of the MSc in Biomedical Informatics program at UChicago.
