Kaitlin Sundling wins ASC Foundation’s “Shark Tank” competition

Cytotechnology Certificate Program Director Kaitlin Sundling, MD, PhD, won the American Society of Cytopathology Foundation’s “Shark Tank” Young Investigator Grant competition with her pitch – “Development of a Deep Learning Image Analysis System for Improved Cytology Screening.”

From a large field of applicants, proposals from 12 semifinalists were evaluated and 3 young researchers were chosen to present in front of the society at its annual meeting in November.

Kaitlin was awarded a two-year $50,000 grant to be used toward her research creating a machine learning prescreening algorithm for cytology.
