- Internationally recognised Deep Learning and Cell Imaging experts, Professors Paul Rees and Huw Summers join the Scientific Advisory Board at ValitaCell and as CellAi platform collaborators.
- Gabriele Aldeghi, Gunjan Gautam and Christian Barrington join ValitaCell as core members of the Artificial Intelligence team to accelerate deployment of ValitaCell’s pioneering CellAi software.
CellAi is ValitaCell’s cell image analysis software that is powered by Artificial Intelligence and is designed to displace slow, destructive cell staining with fast label-free imaging and instant Ai predictions, ultimately enabling a transformation in how innovative medicines are manufactured.
Paul Rees is a professor of engineering at Swansea University (Wales, UK) and a visiting professor at the Broad Institute at MIT/Harvard. Professor Rees pioneered the application of Deep Learning to single cell images from imaging flow cytometry. Professor Huw Summers is internationally recognised for his research excellence which focuses on cytometry and nanomedicine.
Gabriele joins us from Politecnico di Milano (Italy) and the University of Illinois (USA) where he built Deep Learning tools to support eye surgery. Chris’ work at the University of Stirling (Scotland, UK) developed Deep Learning methods for scene segmentation and object depth estimation. Gunjan holds a PhD in Ocular Biometrics from the Indian Institute of Technology Dhanbad (India).
Dr. Jerry Clifford, CEO at ValitaCell
“We are thrilled to be welcoming Gabriele, Gunjan and Chris to the ValitaCell team. Their collective experience will result in an immediate, positive impact. In addition, we are honoured that Professors Paul Rees and Huw Summers will join us as. Drawing on their deep domain expertise will make ValitaCell a world beater.”
Dr. Paul Rees
“I have known the team at ValitaCell for sometime and I have been impressed by their innovation capabilities and expansion into Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence. I’m excited and looking forward to sharing my knowledge with the team and help them deliver their ambitious plans.”
Dr. Huw Summers
“Advanced analytics powered by Artificial Intelligence will transform biomanufacturing. My expertise in cytometry will guide the ValitaCell team’s innovation roadmap and ultimately help to accelerate the development of life-saving biological medicines for those that need it most”
