Congrats to Faisal for accepting an Assistant Professorship of Pathology at Harvard Medical School. The lab will miss him tremendously and we look forward to learning from his research at HMS. Also–he’s looking for postdocs! There’s no better place to do deep learning/pathology research. Check out his website (https://faisal.ai/) for more info.
We’re excited for the next steps of several of our researchers. Congrats to all and good luck with your PhDs!
