Giancardo Lab

Welcome to the Giancardo Lab

Our research focuses on the development of machine learning-based methodologies for unstructured biomedical data such as 2D retina images, X-Rays, 3D CT or MRIs, videos and signals extracted from the interaction with digital devices. Our work has been applied to a number of biomedical applications, such as diabetic retinopathy screening, neurodegenerative disease tracking, stroke care and successfully translated to industry.
