Project description

In this project, we aim to better functionally characterize different spatial contexts within tissues. To this end we will develop novel bioinformatics pipelines to process and integrate several “omics” and imaging data types. Novel machine learning methods will be explored that aim to combine the high spatial resolution of imaging techniques with the deep phenotyping capabilities of current scRNAseq methods.
