TÜBİTAK 1001 Project Proposal granted

Our TÜBİTAK - 1001 proposal, entitled as "Development of Image Processing and Machine Learning based Tools for Analysis of Phase-Contrast Optical Microscopy Time Series Images" prepared in collaboration with Devrim Ünay of İzmir Demokrasi University, Özden Yalçın-Özuysal and Devrim Pesen Okvur of İzmir Institute of Technology has been granted. This project brings together researchers with different expertise. Our common aim is to work towards developing image processing and machine learning based approaches for morphological and movement analyses of breast cancer cell lines from phase-contrast optical microscopy time series images. This, in turn, is anticipated to support cell biology researchers by automating the quantification of cell motility and wound healing problems. Click the link for checking the winning projects.
