We are a group of young professionals aiming to develop computational tools for extracting insights from various biomedical data modalities. Our lab conducts leading interdisciplinary research in the fields of image processing, computer vision, and machine/deep learning for text, imaging, videos and multi-dimensional multi-modal data.
Our team works together with clinicians, biologists, medical doctors with the common goal of accelerating data-driven discovery and facilitating bench-to-bedside translational science with special emphasize in the pediatrics domain.
We are data modality-agnostic, discipline-agnostic, tools-agnostic and love challenges posed by messy real-world big-data. We are also fun-loving, but serious data-wranglers so please do not hesitate to contact if you would like to join us!
Diversity & Inclusion
The Prasath Lab is committed to maintaining a safe and inclusive environment for everyone, regardless of race, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, socio-economic status, or physical/mental ability. We will continuously strive to attain equity in research by promoting a respectful lab environment and being transparent in our work. We believe that open, honest communication, professionalism in science, and a diverse workforce allows us to create new ideas and excel academically.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Pledge
We are committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in our research group, in our courses, within the BMI department, at CCHMC/UC more broadly, and within our research communities.
Diversity -- We recognize that diversity, in all its shapes and forms, strengthens us both culturally and intellectually.
Equity -- We will fight for equal treatment of all people, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or any other attributes that do not define a person's academic and research potential.
Inclusion -- We will work to create an inclusive working environment, so that everyone feels their voices are heard and their contributions are recognized.
Flexible Working Hours
We have flexible working hours:
While as a PI I may be sending emails/messages outside my normal office hours, I have no expectation to receive a reply outside yours.
With the ongoing COVID pandemic, we encourage our lab members to work flexibly for any reason, including working remotely. It is the policy of the Prasath Lab that lab members are self-motivated already and can chose to deviate from a traditional lab set-up to meet our collective research goals. Work hours are up to each lab member and we welcome work-related messages on platforms we use - Emails, WhatsApp, MS Teams, Zoom, Slack,... - however no lab member is required to reply to these outside their 'work hours'.
