What does astronomy have to do with biomarker discovery? At Johns Hopkins, pathologists and astronomers collaborated to develop AstroPath, an innovative approach which analyzes large multiplex IF datasets with celestial object–mapping algorithms to identify optimized predictive phenotypic signatures. In a recent webinar, Janis Taube, MD, MSc, Director of the Dermatopathology Division and Fellowship and Alexander S. Szalay, PhD,, Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Physics, Astronomy and Computer Science at Johns Hopkins, introduced the platform and shared how AstroPath is laying the foundation for rapid, efficient biomarker discovery.
