Philip Carter


Data Scientist

My research focuses on the application of machine learning to single cell cancer transcriptomic and genomic datasets. This allows new insights into cancer, with potential clinical implications. I am interested in a range of cancer types, including breast cancer, lung cancers and melanoma, and I am currently working on clinical studies in colorectal, myeloma, renal and bladder cancers. 

I studied for a PhD in Bioinformatics at Imperial College, and worked as a postdoc at UCL. I was involved in human genome projects at the Sanger Institute, and since then I have been researching cancer at Barts Cancer Institute, Imperial College and Cancer Research UK.
