Tools and capabilities for sharing, accessing and integrating multi-dimensional bioimaging and biomolecular data
Research in a Nutshell
At the University of Dundee, I lead the Open Microscopy Environment Consortium, an open source specification and software project that builds tools for accessing and sharing complex, heterogenous multi-dimensional datasets. We use OME’s tools to build and run the Image Data Resource, one of the largest collections of public bioimaging data. My wet lab focuses on mechanism that control chromosome segregation at mitosis. I also lead the National Phenotypic Screening Centre, which provides advanced, high performance image-based phenotypic screening services to labs and companies across Europe.
In Wellcome Leap’s Tissue Program, we aim to build a “tissue time machine” that predicts how human tissues will change during disease to give researchers, clinicians and patients an accurate prediction of disease progression.
