About us

The Marr Lab develops methods to improve image-based diagnostics, quantitative hypothesis testing, and the prediction of biomedical system kinetics in close collaboration with our biomedical and clinical partners.

  • We design deep learning algorithms to analyze images and profile single cells, exploiting the information contained in huge biomedical data sets. 
  • We build interpretable mechanistic models that enable the inclusion of prior knowledge to advance our understanding of biomedical systems. 
  • We closely collaborate with clinical and medical researchers to translate our methods towards real-word clinical solutions.
