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 have a number of research focusses including:

  • Computational modelling of single-cell and spatially resolved ‘omics data
  • Understanding the composition and dynamics of the tumour microenvironment and how it enables tumour progression
  • Machine learning algorithms to help automate biological and biomedical data analysis
