Heba Sailem
Senior Lecturer in Biomedical AI and Data Science,
King’s College London

Dr Heba Sailem is a Senior Lecturer of Biomedical AI and Data Science at the School of Cancer and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Her research is focused on developing artificial intelligence and bioinformatics approaches for improving patient treatment and welfare. In 2022, she has been awarded an eight-year Wellcome Career Development Award that aims to decipher the tumour microenvironment interactions. The group work is highly interdisciplinary and combines insights from histopathology, genetics, pharmaceutical medicine and cell biology.

Before joining King's, she worked between the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Big Data Institute at the University of Oxford and Lucas Pelkmans group at the University of Zurich as a Sir Henry Wellcome Research Fellow and Corpus Christi Junior Research Fellow. There, she has developed several machine learning approaches to tackle challenges in pattern recognition and interpretability of large-scale biomedical image data.

Dr Sailem did her PhD at the Institute of Cancer Research in London where she developed methods for integrating phenotypic data with gene expression and modelling of the relationship between cell signalling and its context. She has a BSc in Computer Information Systems and MSc in Data Warehousing and Data Mining.
