Join us to hear from Prof Jean Yang, Director of Sydney Precision Data Science. Her topic: Translational and analytical potential of spatial transcriptomics prediction from histology images.

A light lunch will be served in the foyer following Prof Yang’s presentation.

Professor Yang is a leader in statistical bioinformatics who works in cutting-edge biomedical research. She is currently the Director of the Sydney Precision Data Science. Her research has led to seminal advances in integration of multi-layered biological data integration by removing extraneous variability and accounting for heterogeneity. Recently, she has made similarly significant advances in scalable data integration in single-cell transcriptomics sequencing. She was awarded the Moran Medal in recognition of her work on developing methods for molecular data arising in cutting-edge biomedical research. As a statistical data scientist who works in the interface of statistics, biomedicine, and health. She enjoys developing novel methods with translational potential in a collaborative environment, working closely with investigators from diverse backgrounds.
