Dr Yuchun Ding

Research Associate



I'm a computer scientist who has a great interests in taking pathology out in the public. While working and learning side-by-side with pathologists to develop practical solutions in digital pathology, in my spare time, I applied my knowledge from entrepreneurship training aiming to make cutting edge microscopic technologies easier to access, which will provide high resolution full-slide imaging that will ensure a more accurate diagnosis and hence better treatment for cancer.  


I joined the School of Computing Science in 2016 as a research associate at the Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex BioSystems (ICOS) research group and I am part of the Newcastle Molecular Pathology Node (NMPN).
