Voters’ Choice Poster Award – Digital Life 2022

We congratulate the joint winners of the Voters’ Choice Poster Award at the Digital Life 2022 conference: Léa Rosselle (Postdoc, Oslo University Hospital) and Anum Masood (Postdoc, NTNU)! 

Congratulations to the winners of the Voters’ Choice Poster Award at the Digital Life 2022 conference: Léa Rosselle PhD (third from left) and Anum Masood PhD (right)! 

For the 2022 Digital Life conference, young researchers again had the opportunity to share their research in a poster session, which returned by popular request. A total of 16 posters were part of the session, and all conference participants could vote for their top posters through an online voting system. Topics ranged from new models for analyzing composition, pressure, and spatial distribution in anatomy; biosensing with nanoparticles; multiomics, modeling, and AI in cancer; and more. You can read all the poster abstracts here.  

Léa Rosselle PhD (Postdoc at Oslo University Hospital Translational Research Unit) presented her work with the title “CellFit: T cells fit to fight cancer.” Her research focuses on the use of T lymphocytes in adoptive cell therapy (ACT), which shows great promise for treatment of cancers otherwise incurable, yet only five T-cell products have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for clinical use. Rosselle and team aim to define optimal growth conditions for improved manufacturing of adapted therapeutic T cells required for solid tumour treatment. Learn more about the CellFit project.  

Anum Masood PhD (Postdoc at NTNU MR Physics Group and MR Cancer Group) presented her work entitled “Automated Lymphoma Cancer Detection and Ann-Arbor Staging Using Deep Learning with 18F-FDG PET/MR Images.” Lymphoma cancer develops in the lymphatic system and can affect organs throughout the body. Masood and team aim to develop a method for automated segmentation to improve cancer stage determination using advanced PET/MR cancer imaging.  

Both winners will receive 5000 NOK to use towards their research. The Centre for Digital Life Norway wishes both winners, as well as all who presented their posters, success on their ongoing research!

Note: At the conference, the organizers recognized a different poster as receiving the most votes. However, this was due to multiple votes by several conference participants, who notified the organizers afterwards. A decision was then agreed by all parties to recognize the next highest vote-getters as the winners. The Centre for Digital Life regrets this and will work to ensure a fairer voting system next time.
