Digital microscopy and image informatics

Organizer: Sripad Ram, Pfizer Inc.

This session will focus on the recent explosive growth of digital microscopy technologies in biotech, biopharma and life-sciences industries especially in the preclinical and clinical space. This year, the session will focus on machine learning and advanced image analytics. We are soliciting abstracts in diverse topics including (but not limited to) computational pathology, multiplexing technologies and applications, whole slide image analysis of histopathology data and high throughput live-cell imaging. Short talks will be selected from submitted abstracts.
