Project title: "Towards precision medicine for ischemic stroke: Integrating clinical, molecular omic, and neuroimaging data using machine learning"

The objective is to improve mechanistic understanding and enhance prediction of ischemic stroke outcomes using AI approaches*(deep learning and machine learning). The project consists of two main subprojects:

  1. Molecular omics: The PhD student will profile blood-based biomarkers associated with stroke recurrence and functional/neurological outcomes using ML techniques.

  2. Advanced neuroimaging: An AI-based pipeline will extract metrics from brain MRI scans. Radiomic biomarkers will be tested alone and in combination with molecular biomarkers.

The purpose of the project is to deepen knowledge about geographical differences regarding pregnancy length and investigate its causes. Data will primarily come from the Medical Birth Register, relevant quality registers, and SCB's population register. By using machine learning and spatial analysis methods, we will investigate the effect of various sociodemographic and contextual risk factors; both individually and in different combinations. Furthermore, it will be investigated how these factors affect pregnancy length in different parts of the country. This is to understand causal relationships and develop possible interventions. By evaluating the generalizability of the results outside Sweden, the project can also contribute to a global reduction of premature births and thus promote equality in maternal and child health.

PhD Student Profile:

Experience in epidemiology, machine learning, mathematics, and strong statistical interest. Python proficiency and Unix experience are advantageous.

Application Deadline: 4 June 2024
