Prof Nasir Rajpoot

University of Warwick

Nasir Rajpoot is Professor in Computational Pathology at the University of Warwick, where started his academic career as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in 2001.

He was recently awarded the Wolfson Fellowship by the UK Royal Society and the Turing Fellowship by the Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national data science institute.

At Warwick, he is the founding Head of Tissue Image Analytics (TIA) lab since 2012. He also holds an Honorary Scientist position at the Department of Pathology, University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Trust since 2016.

The focus of current research in his lab is on developing novel computational pathology algorithms with applications to computer-assisted grading of cancer and image-based markers for prediction of cancer progression and survival.

Prof Rajpoot has been active in the digital pathology community for almost a decade now, having co-chaired several meetings in the histology image analysis (HIMA) series since 2008 and served as a founding PC member of the SPIE Digital Pathology meeting since 2012.

He was the General Chair of the UK Medical Image Understanding and Analysis (MIUA) conference in 2010, and the Technical Chair of the British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC) in 2007.

He has guest edited a special issue of Machine Vision and Applications on Microscopy Image Analysis and its Applications in Biology in 2012, and a special section on Multivariate Microscopy Image Analysis in the IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging in 2010.

He is a Senior Member of IEEE and member of the ACM, the British Association of Cancer Research (BACR), the European Association of Cancer Research (EACR), and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).

He will be chairing the European Congress on Digital Pathology (ECDP) at Warwick in 2019.
