In the Department of Data Science we generate knowledge from data to advance neuroscience and ophthalmology.

Our team members

Our team members combine expertise in machine learning, modeling and data visualization with domain knowledge in neuroscience and ophthalmology. We analyze large and complex data sets to advance our understanding of the healthy eye and brain and how they are affected by degenerative diseases. We believe that data holds the key to answering many questions about how the healthy eye and brain works and how diseases impact its function, how they can be detected early and how their time course can be predicted.  We are the interface that brings together data with domain knowledge and the most suitable algorithm to distill insight into scientific or clinical questions.
