    Casey Greene

    Casey is an assistant professor in the Department of Systems Pharmacology and Translational Therapeutics in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. His lab develops deep learning methods that integrate distinct large-scale datasets to extract the rich and intrinsic information embedded in such integrated data. This approach reveals underlying principles of an organism’s genetics, its environment, and its response to that environment. Extracting this key contextual information reveals where the data’s context doesn’t fit existing models and raises the questions that a complete collection of publicly available data indicates researchers should be asking. In addition to developing deep learning methods for extracting context, a core mission of his lab is bringing these capabilities into every molecular biology lab. Before starting the Integrative Genomics Lab in 2012, Casey earned his Ph.D. for his study of gene-gene interactions in the field of computational genetics from Dartmouth College in 2009 and moved to the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton University where he worked as a postdoctoral fellow from 2009-2012. The overarching theme of his work has been the development and evaluation of methods that acknowledge the emergent complexity of biological systems.

    I am a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. David Issadore Lab in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTUA), India and Ph.D. from University of Tennessee (Knoxville) under the supervision of Dr. Ramki Kalyanaraman. My current research work focuses on scale-up of droplet microfluidic techniques for drug delivery systems.

    David R Busch

    I am an experimental physicist, focused on applications of diffuse optical spectroscopy and imaging to human diseases. My work has involved instrument design, construction, and control, and advanced data analysis techniques.

    Most of my past projects involved detection and staging of breast cancer with multi-modal imaging (esp. MRI); my current work focuses on brain injury during ischemic stroke and ECMO therapy. I am involved in projects applying diffuse optics to a variety of other conditions, including muscle disease and brain function.
