Lina Nilsson is Senior Director of Data Science Product at Recursion, a biotech that is reimagining drug discovery using machine learning and large-scale laboratory automation. Previously, she was the COO of Enlitic, a startup that uses deep learning to improve clinical radiology. As Innovation Director at University of California, Berkeley, she helped spin out social-impact technologies. Lina has been recognized on MIT Technology Review's "TR35" annual list of the world's top innovators. Her writings on open science, social impact technologies, and gender & tech have been published in the New York Times, Washington Post, and Science. Lina has a PhD in biomedical engineering from the ETH Zurich.
Dr. David Andrews is Director of and senior scientist in Biological Sciences at Sunnybrook Research Institute, Professor of Biochemistry and Medical Biophysics at University of Toronto and a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Membrane Biogenesis. His research includes, the molecular mechanisms by which Bcl-2 family proteins regulate apoptosis at mitochondria, mechanisms of protein-protein interactions, the assembly of proteins into membranes, high-content screening and development of new microscopes for fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy.
Dr. Andrews uses fluorescence spectroscopy, fluorescence lifetime imaging and automated fluorescence microscopy to study protein-protein interactions in live cells and in membranes, protein localization in cells and the effects of drugs on cells. His lab has proposed the now widely accepted model for how Bcl-2 family proteins regulate apoptosis and has discovered and characterized small molecules that inhibit Bcl-2 family protein mediated mitochondrial outer membrane permeabilization that have applications to cancer and regenerative medicine.
Dr. Andrews is active in the public and private sector. In recent years he was president of the Society for Biomolecular Imaging and Informatics. He is a member of the editorial board of Cell Death and Differentiation. He participated in the start-up of two companies, Fermentas and Isogenica and consults for several other companies and academic centers. His group performs collaborative and contract research for a variety of biotech companies including ABBVIE, Eli Lilly, Johnson and Johnson, Novartis and Celgene. He holds licensed patents in areas such as translational regulation, in vitro evolution, peptide display technologies and optical microscopy.
Mark joined NIBR in 2016 as data scientist specializing in machine learning applied to high-content microscopy. He completed a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering at Vanderbilt University, a postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University, followed by a staff scientist position in the Imaging Platform at the Broad Institute in Cambridge MA.
Dr. Harrill works as a cellular and molecular toxicologist with the US Environmental Protection Agency's Center for Computational Toxicology and Exposure. Dr. Harrill’s expertise is in vitro toxicology, specifically the application of next generation sequencing, high content imaging (HCI) and other complementary technologies for high-throughput chemical hazard screening, characterization and risk assessment. Dr. Harrill is currently a lead investigator for NCCT’s high-throughput transcriptomics and high-throughput phenotypic profiling hazard screening programs that focus on the use of broad-based high-content profiling assays for concentration-response screening of environmental chemicals in human-derived in vitro test systems. Dr. Harrill received his B.S. in Biochemistry from North Carolina State University and a Ph.D. in Toxicology for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Harrill’s graduate and postdoctoral training focused on the application of transcriptomic technologies for evaluating mechanisms of pesticide neurotoxicity and development of HCI-based high-/medium-throughput methods for in vitro developmental neurotoxicity screening. Dr. Harrill then served as a principal investigator at a non-profit research institute researching the role of ligand-activated nuclear receptors in tissue development and liver carcinogenesis using transcriptomic technologies as well as developing novel in vitro models for assessing chemical effects on hepatic stem/progenitor cells. Dr. Harrill also has experience from the private sector in conducting human health risk assessments using USEPA and state-level guidance as well as devising and managing rapid-phase environmental sampling, analysis and data interpretation programs during events involving the release of potentially hazardous chemicals.
Dr. Fuhui Long is a Staff Analytics Engineer at Cytiva, a global provider of technologies and services that advance and accelerate the development and manufacture of therapeutics. Her work over the years mainly focuses on developing machine learning, deep learning, and image analysis algorithms and software to help address challenging problems in biomedical applications and life sciences.

Before joining Cytiva, she was with GE Healthcare briefly, working on the same topic. She worked as a senior machine learning R&D engineer at Allen Institute for Brain Science and a research scientist at Howard Hughes Medical Institute, where she developed very useful computational techniques for microscopy image analysis to help address questions in brain research and published high impact papers in Nature, Science, and Cell.
Arvonn Tully is a Senior Software Application Specialist at Yokowaga Life Innovations. He has more than 15 years of experience working in 3D image analysis, with a special interest in sub cellular tracking, neuronal reconstruction, and finding solutions for complex analysis problems. Prior to joining Yokogawa, Arvonn worked for Arivis to solve problems with terabyte sized images and image analysis in VR collaboration. At Bitplane, he provided extensive training in 3d Image analysis for users and developing novel 3d co-localization solutions. His research background was focused on imaging and biophysics of large dense core vesicles in Drosophila at the University of Pittsburgh.
Judi Wardwell is a Senior Application Scientist at InSphero and President Elect of the SBI2 board of directors.
