Getting more from microscope images: learning and
using generative models of cell organization
Dr. Robert F. Murphy is the Ray and Stephanie Lane Professor of Computational Biology and Head of the Computational Biology Department in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. He is also Professor of Biological Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, and Machine Learning there, and Honorary Professor of Biology at the Albert Ludwig University of Freiburg, Germany. Dr. Murphy’s career has centered on combining cell measurement methods with quantitative and computational methods. His group has pioneered a number of machine learning methods for analyzing and modeling various aspects of cell organization, including methods for learning models of cell components and their relationships to each other directly from microscope images.
