Dr. Karim Lekadir is a Ramon y Cajal Researcher and Director of the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Lab at the Universitat de Barcelona (BCN-AIM). He holds a PhD from Imperial College London (UK) and was previously a Visiting Scholar at Stanford University (USA). His current research focuses on the development of data science and machine learning approaches for the analysis of large-scale biomedical data, including imaging, clinical, lifestyle and mobile data. The software he developed during his PhD for cardiac functional quantification has been CE marked and commercialised by CMRtools, and is now used in more than 250 clinical centres worldwide. He is the Coordinator of the euCanSHare H2020 project (2018-2022), developing a big data platform for cardiovascular research. He is the Coordinator of the EarlyCause H2020 project (2019-2023), which investigates multi-morbidity using experimental and data science approaches. He is also the Coordinator of the EuCanImage H2020 project (2020-2024), which is building a federated artificial intelligence environment for cancer imaging. He is WP leader in the LongITools H2020 project (2019-2024), developing a mobile app for cardio-metabolic risk prediction based on exposome data. He is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging.
