20 European researchers gathered last week at the Techno-pôle in Sierre, Switserland to kick-off the European H2020 project ExaMode. Coordinated by the Institute of Information Systems of the HES-SO Valais-Wallis, Jeroen van der Laak, Francesco Ciompi and Mart van Rijthoven are working in partnership with the University of Padova (Italy … Read more →
Computational Pathology Group
The Computational Pathology Group develops, validates and deploys novel medical image analysis methods based on deep learning technology and focusing on computer-aided diagnosis. Application areas include diagnostics and prognostics of breast, prostate and colon cancer. We have rapidly expanded over the last few years, counting over 15 people today. Our group is among the international front runners in the field, witnessed for instance by our highly successful CAMELYON challenges. We have a strong translational focus, facilitated by our close collaboration with clinicians and industry.
Last month, Computational pathology group-members Francesco Ciompi and Jeroen van der Laak have been awarded 2 grants for performing cancer research based on deep learning techniques. Supported by funding of the European Union’s ICT12 H2020 program, Jeroen and Francesco will work together with a consortium of European partners on … Read more →
Vacancies & Student projects
The goal is to develop a deep learning algorithm for the differentiation of STIC lesions from normal fallopian tube epithelium. The digital pathology images of a cohort of both STIC lesions and normal tubal epithelium from BRCA1/2 carries will be available. The output will be an algorithm that can identify aberrant tubal epithelium with a high sensitivity.
The Computational Pathology Group of the Radboud University Medical Center, Nijmegen, The Netherlands, is seeking a Postdoctoral researcher with experience in development of deep learning models. This is an excellent opportunity to develop cutting-edge deep learning technology to have an impact on breast cancer research and personalized cancer treatment.
The Diagnostic Image Analysis Group (DIAG) of the Radboud University Medical Center, Nijmegen, The Netherlands, is seeking a research software engineer to join our growing team. This is an excellent opportunity to have an impact on the field by translating our state-of-the-art deep learning research in pathology into robust software that could be integrated into the pathologists workflow.
