Dr. Carpenter is an Institute Scientist at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT. Her research group develops algorithms and strategies for large-scale experiments involving images. The team's open-source CellProfiler software is used by thousands of biologists worldwide (www.cellprofiler.org). Carpenter is a pioneer in image-based profiling, the extraction of rich, unbiased information from images for a number of important applications in drug discovery and functional genomics. Carpenter completed her postdoctoral fellowship at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research and MIT's Computer Sciences/Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). Her PhD is in cell biology from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Carpenter has been named an NSF CAREER awardee, an NIH MIRA awardee, a Massachusetts Academy of Sciences fellow (its youngest at the time), a Genome Technology "Rising Young Investigator" and is listed in Deep Knowledge Analytics' top-100 AI Leaders in Drug Discovery and Advanced Healthcare.
