Informatics Institute PowerTalk Seminar Series - Bioinformatics: Rahul Singh, Ph.D.

This is a past event.

Presenter: Rahul Singh, Ph.D. 

Topic: "Using AI-algorithms to Advance Drug Discovery for Neglected Parasitic Diseases" 

Description: In this talk, there will be a description of how AI-algorithms and image data science can be applied to model and analyze complex high-dimensional data obtained from chemical-biology and drug screening experiments.

The talk will focus on the etiological agent of schistosomiasis, one of the most significant tropical diseases, and show how the AI-based computational approach has led us, together with fellow researchers, to a solution for a historically longstanding problem that had bottlenecked quantitative and high-throughput chemical biology/drug discovery in this disease area.
