Osheen Sharma

PhD student

As a PhD student in Olli Kallioniemi group under the guidance of the Brinton Seashore-Ludlow, I'm employing cutting-edge deep neural networks to analyze high throughput drug screening dataset

Research description

My research focuses on studying the morphological changes in ovarian cancer cell lines when exposed to drugs, utilizing cutting-edge deep neural networks in conjunction with established image analysis tools like ImageJ and cellprofiler. By analyzing high throughput drug screening datasets, I aim to identify key morphological features of cancer cells that respond to drug treatment, ultimately providing insights into the mechanisms of drug action and enabling the development of more effective and targeted cancer therapies.


I hold a Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering from Manipal Institute of Technology, Karnataka, India. I further pursued my education with a Master's degree in Medical Engineering from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, specializing in Image Analysis and Computer Vision.

Academic honours, awards and prizes

I have been awarded the TonyB Travel Award to present my research at SLAS 2023 International Conference, which was held in San Diego, USA, during February 25th to March 1st, 2023.
