Artificial Intelligence in Medical Imaging:


Raphael Meier has a background in biomedical engineering and informatics. He is a postdoctoral researcher at the Support Center for Advanced Neuroimaging of the University Institute for Diagnostic & Interventional Neuroradiology at the Inselspital in Bern. Raphael started his career in 2003 as an apprentice in informatics at Novartis AG in Basel. Following his apprenticeship, he completed a bachelor’s degree in Life Science Technologies at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland (2011), a master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering (2013) and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering (2017) at the University of Bern. Raphael’s research is focused on the application of machine learning to solve problems in brain image analysis. In particular, he is interested in techniques important for translation of machine learning methods into clinics such as model interpretability, uncertainty quantification and model validation. Furthermore, he is interested in imaging biomarker discovery for brain tumors and stroke.
