Project 10: Biomedical applications of Artificial Intelligence

Suitable Majors

Computer Science

Research Area

Artificial Intelligence/Bioinformatics

Internship Description

The aim of the project is to understand our understanding of complex diseases through the development and application of novel AI methods to biomedical data.​ ​We will use feature learning methods to generate representations of information in biomedical data, including experimental data (e.g., time-series gene expression datasets), literature, and structured knowledge in databases.​


Beneficial academic skills include knowledge in Artificial Intelligence, in particular deductive reasoning and machine learning; programming skills; statistical data analysis. No prior knowledge in bioinformatics or biology is required.​


Outcome will be a novel AI method for a particular biomedical problem, comparatively evaluated against existing methods.
