Life after MAIA by AMJAD KHAN

I am an MAIA graduate and it has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. During the MAIA master program, I witnessed several academic and research institutions in France, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland. For me, MAIA was not only about research skills that prepared me for future opportunities in the domain of medical imaging and applications but also improved my interpersonal and management skills with extensive exposure to a rich multicultural environment. During the two years of the MAIA master's program, I became well-equipped academically and socially with the help of very cooperative colleagues and faculty members in all the participating universities. While working on several medical imaging modalities for diagnosis, I found my interest in computational pathology. Therefore, I completed my thesis mainly focused on stain heterogeneity in histopathology images for machine learning-based diagnosis. At present, as a doctoral student, I am very much delighted that MAIA prepared me well enough to address the challenges in computational pathology at the Institute of Pathology, University of Bern, Switzerland.

Life after MAIA by Fakrul Islam Tushar

I am Fakrul Islam Tushar an MAIA graduate, currently working as a Research Associate at the Carl E. Ravin Advanced Imaging Laboratories (RAI Labs), Duke University Medical Center, USA. I am primarily engaged in research, computer-aided diagnosis, and healthcare innovation using machine learning, neural networks, and image analysis driven solutions. MAIA was the turning point where I found my interest in machine learning and deep learning related to medical imaging. Interactive course work and hands-on project experiences of MAIA equipped us to tackle a variety of challenges and opened a horizon of opportunities. One of the most exciting parts of MAIA Master’s studies was the cultural exposure we received. I studied in four different countries which were from two different continents; and got to experience different cultures, food, and most importantly, the people. I believe these experiences helped me grow as a person and they also have aided in building respect and appreciation for cultural diversity. Looking forward to seeing the next MAIA batch and the milestones they achieve.
