    June 05, 2020: M.D. Vu Thi Hanh (Bach Mai Hospital), Application of biomedical image analysis in cytogenetic tests of hematology malignant diseases

    Hematology malignant diseases such as Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Multiple Myeloma are serious illnesses. The estimated number of new cases of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML), according to the report by WHO in 2014, is 1-2/100k people annually. Without diagnostics and treatment with targeted drugs, most CML patients with acute Leukemia would only live a few months. Targeted therapy for CML patients in early-stage with a positive response could reach life expectancy up to 10 years more. In diagnostics and analysis of hematology malignant, according to WHO classification standard, cytogenetic tests such as karyotyping of the chromosomes image of the bone marrow cells and Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) act an important role. In this talk, I would like to present the background of the hematology malignant diseases, chromosomal abnormality analysis procedure using karyotyping and FISH techniques. However, the results often prolong to 7-10 days because the current technology requires a lot of manual techniques, which results in delayed therapy treatment. Therefore, automatization in image analysis procedure in karyotyping and FISH is necessary for early diagnostics and treatment of the hematology malignant diseases.

    Vu Thi Hanh is currently the chief of the Genetic and Molecular Biology Laboratory of Hematology and Blood Transfusion Department, Bach Mai Hospital. Her job specializes in analyzing human chromosome abnormality and detecting mutation genes in hematology malignant such as leukemia, myeloproliferative neoplasm diseases. She received a Bachelor of Medical Technology at Hanoi Medical University in 2008. She has been working for Bach Mai Hospital since 2008. She completed a Master Program at College Medicine, Taipei Medical University, Taiwan in 2018, focusing on antiemetic metoclopramide and dengue virus infection.


    February 2, 2024: Dr. Khoa D. Doan (Vin Univeristy) Toward Reliable and Practical Machine Learning Applications

    While Machine Learning (ML) has rapidly transformed several domains and applications with incredible successes, there are also important areas where the progress is significantly slower. Specifically, there exists a widened complexity gap between the methods currently investigated in research and those used in practice in these areas. One reason is that many algorithms, despite achieving […]

    February 2, 2024: Prof. Heng Ji (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Combating with Misinformation and Cancer: A Unified Multimodal AI Approach to Healthy and Happy Life

    A research overview of ongoing research projects, especially focusing on two that are most related to the VinUni-UIUC Smart Health Center: (1) Misinformation Detection and Trustworthy Large Language Models; (2) Joint Natural Language and Molecule Learning for Drug Discovery. Unsurprisingly these two seemingly different research problems can be tackled with a unified approach based on […]

    January 11, 2024: Dr. Le Duc Trong (FIT-UET) Resilient Multimodal Learning for Multimodal Emotion Recognition in the Presence of Incomplete Modalities

    Multimodal Emotion Recognition in Conversation (Multimodal ERC) is a critical area of research for interpreting human communication in diverse applications. Nevertheless, the persistent issue of uncertain missing modalities poses a major hurdle, hampering the development of robust Multimodal ERC models. Existing approaches face limitations in effectively leveraging a fusion of diverse data modalities encompassing audio, […]
