Researchers today often do not look through the microscope themselves: With the vast number of cells, tissue sections and tumor samples, there is simply too much for the human eye to spot and record.
It was for this reason that Christian Conrad introduced machine learning into the field of medical imaging early on. With the help of artificial intelligence (AI), thousands of samples and cells can now be automatically analyzed using high-throughput methods. In addition, the combination of microscopy, AI and new single-cell sequencing methods opens up entirely new possibilities for discovering the function of cells in their tissue context. At the beginning of the year, Christian Conrad assumed the BIH Professorship for Intelligent Imaging at the Digital Health Center of the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) and Charité – Universitätsmedizin.
