    The project they would work on:

    The primary objective is to establish a robust digital pathology analysis pipeline, focusing on the processing of diversely stained imaging data, including H&E, mIF, and IMC. The pipeline will incorporate foundational modules for cell/tissue segmentation and cell phenotyping to extract clinically meaningful insights into tumor micro - environment such as tumor immune phenotype (TIP) and tertiary lymphoid structures (TLS). The intern's pivotal role in this project involves leveraging our internal repository of multi-modality datasets and independent tool suites. Through this, the candidate will actively engage in the design, optimization, and validation of the pipeline.

    What success would look like:

    • Achieve a good understanding of existing methodologies of related frameworks through summarization, presentation, and internal discussion.

    • Define appropriate target performance metrics both objective (dice, recall rate, etc.) and subjective (visualization, multi-modality overlay)

    • Deliver and deploy working PoCs for TIP and TLS analysis

    • Define, lead, and leverage internal/external annotation effort for initial validation.

    • Effectively communicating results and findings within the organization through internal meetings and presentations.

    • Draft manuscripts to be used for potential internal & external publications.
