Abstract

The scope of this OURE Fellows project is to investigate deep learning and big data techniques to detect key features in the epithelium in digitized histology images and to classify epithelium regions for Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN) discrimination. William Ong will be asked to label key features in the epithelium region from a database of over 200 digitized histology images to be used as inputs for deep learning algorithms. William will use existing image annotation tools available in Dr. R. Joe Stanley’s laboratory as well as baseline deep learning methods developed in Python for feature and CIN discrimination analysis. He will work with Dr. Stanley and also with Dr. William Van Stoecker for the image labeling process. William will apply and utilize these labeled features, including nuclei, cellular network and data fusion techniques to identify and characterize key features and to classify the epithelium region. All work will be done under the supervision of Dr. R. Joe Stanley, the faculty advisor for this project and will be mentored by two of Dr. Stanley’s Ph.D. graduate students.
