Kieran Campbell Lab Toronto

The Campbell Lab is a group of data scientists working at the interface of statistics, machine learning, and translational biomedicine. We are based in Toronto's Discovery District at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute of Sinai Health System and the Departments of Molecular Genetics and Statistical Sciences at the University of Toronto.

We are primarily interested in

  • Probabilistic modelling to understand single-cell and spatially resolved ‘omics data in the context of cancer
  • Machine learning algorithms to help automate biological and biomedical data analysis
  • Machine learning models to uncover structure from large, heterogeneous datasets such as electronic health records (EHRs)
