Imon Banerjee
Assistant Professor

Assistant Professor
Department of Biomedical informatics
Department of Radiology
Emory University School of Medicine


The focus of Banerjee's lab is the analysis and integration of unstructured medical data (images, 3D models, clinical narratives) to support clinical diagnosis and treatment. In regards to cancer, she's interested in diagnosis and prognosis using deep learning, predictive analysis longitudinal data, and natural language processing of clinical notes.

Abeed Sarker
Assistant Professor

Assistant Professor
Biomedical Informatics
Emory University School of Medicine

My lab’s research lies at the intersection of computational linguistics, social media mining, applied machine learning, public health and medicine. We work with natural language data from various sources–social media, published medical literature and electronic health records. We design and develop solutions for both big data and small data problems associated with health. 


Leslie Chan
Assistant Professor

Assistant Professor at Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering

Research interests: Nanomedicine, smart materials, immunoengineering, infectious disease, microbiome health, inflammation 

My lab focuses on the development of bioresponsive nanomaterials that are delivered in vivo to harness biochemical cues in diseased tissue as triggers for disease readouts or site-specific therapeutic activity. We are especially interested in developing these tools to study, detect, and treat microbe-driven disease states (e.g. infections, microbiome dysbiosis, inflammation). Our goal is to develop solutions that can be readily translated at the point of care, for at-home use, or deployed for infectious disease surveillance to promote public health. To achieve this, we integrate nanomaterial design, chemical biology, and medicine and leverage collaborations with clinicians, immunologists, microbiologists, and other engineers. 



Manoj Bhasin
Associate Professor

Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Emory School of Medicine,
Associate Professor of Biomedical Informatics at Emory School of Medicine


His main interest is applying and developing systematic analysis strategies for high-throughput transcriptional profiling, epigenomics, genotyping, proteomics, and metabolomics data to improve molecular understanding of diseases and to identify novel diagnostics, prognostic and therapeutics biomarkers. He is leading development of computational approaches for systems level integrative analysis of imaging, clinical and multidimensional genome level data to identify key features driving the disease.
