Nina Linder

Nina Linder MD, PhD is an adjunct professor in the field of molecular medicine from the University of Helsinki, Finland. Nina Linder has profound knowledge in molecular medicine and cancer biomarker research and a five-year track record as a medical advisor within the pharmaceutical industry with involvement in clinical trials for novel targeted molecular therapeutics in the field of oncology. Current research areas include image-based diagnostics with special focus on developing high-throughput computer assisted artificial intelligence-based methods for the analysis of digitized patient samples. The purpose of her ongoing research is to promote the implementation of novel decision support tools for precision medicine by using big data and systems medicine, with the goal to improve the translation of information from basic medical research to the clinical setting.
