MBP scientist Dr. Anne Martel has been appointed to the Tory Family Chair in Oncology, jointly shared by the University of Toronto and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. The Chair, established in 2007 by the John A. and Liz Tory Family, provides support for cancer research for a five-year renewable term.

The support of this appointment will enable Dr. Martel to carry out transformative, translational work in the field of deep learning applied to medical imaging and image-guided therapy. Her research uses anonymized patient data — in the form of X-rays, CT scans, MR images and digital pathology — to develop and train artificial intelligence (AI) models that will eventually be used to solve pressing clinical problems across multiple clinical areas.

Please join the Department in congratulating Dr. Anne Martel on this outstanding achievement.
