Sano Centre for Computational Medicine is a new International Scientific Foundation located in Kraków, Poland.
Sano aspires to be a major translational scientific institute, operating at the meeting point of academic science, established MedTech industry, and emerging start-up environment, combining the best of these three perspectives.
Established with support from the European Commission and the Foundation for Polish Science, Sano aims to be a major driving force behind the advancement of computational medicine for the benefit of healthcare systems worldwide.
Sano acts as a core technology and expertise provider for industry, and creator of innovation, developing state-of-the-art solutions for healthcare. Thanks to the substantial funding and excellent European partnership network, Sano will bring critical mass to this transformational field of research, in order to translate scientific advancements onto clinical practice. Sano’s ambition is to become the Reference Centre for Computational Medicine in Central Europe and build a reputation as a leading center on a global level.
As a cross-disciplinary institution, Sano uses machine learning/artificial intelligence (ML/AI), large scale computer simulations, data science, and other computational technologies towards overcoming global challenges in healthcare systems. The research agenda will be executed in close collaboration with Partners in Poland, EU and USA.
The Clinical Data Science team at Sano is seeking a highly motivated and talented PhD student to undertake a research project focused on leveraging federated search to advance rare disease diagnosis and management. Rare diseases pose significant challenges in terms of accurate diagnosis and effective treatment due to their low prevalence and limited data availability. This project aims to develop innovative approaches using federated search to aggregate and analyze diverse biomedical data sources, enabling improved understanding, diagnosis, and management of rare diseases. The candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. Ahmed Abdeen Hamed, the head of the Clinical Data Science Team.
