AI Based Retinal Lesion Growth Prediction
Abstract: The automated prediction of retinal lesion growth can help ophthalmologists understand how the lesion progresses, and assess the efficiency of current treatment and the prognosis of the disease. In this presentation, we will introduce our work on geographic atrophy (GA) and choroidal neovascularization (CNV) growth prediction by using artifical intelegentence technologies. For GA prediction, a traditional machine learning method and a deep learning method were proposed. For CNV prediction, a lesion attention maps-guided network (LamNet) was proposed to predict the CNV volume. In addition, a generation-based image-to-image prediction method will also be simply introduced to predictively generate post-therapeutic images.

Fabrication and biological evaluation of tumor acidic microenvironment-responsive targeted macromolecular delivery system
Proteins and nucleic acids-based macromolecular antitumor agents possess some unique advantages as compared to small molecules, such as good biosafety, high specificity and efficacy, and have gained increasing attention in recent years. However, their biomedical application is greatly hampered by their intrinsic characteristics including hydrophilicity, large molecular size, short half-life and poor cellular internalization. Tumor acidity is an adaptive characteristic of most cancers, and could be utilized to develop nanocarriers with universal tumor targeting ability. pH low insertion peptide (pHLIP) is a short (36 amino acids), pH-responsive peptide that could insert its C-terminus across the cell membrane via forming a stable transmembrane a-helix under acidic conditions. In this speech, two pHLIP-based tumor acidity-targeted delivery systems will be introduced, they were employed for effective delivery of protein (plant toxin gelonin) and siRNA targeting pyruvate kinase M2 (PKM2), respectively.

Medical report generation from X-ray image using deep learning
Writing imaging reports is a critical task, especially in a rural area where the health care system is already poor. Moreover, depending heavily on radiologists' and pathologists' interpretations, who sometimes seem less experience, makes the medical system worse. Therefore, there is a considerable demand for this summarization of the imaging report, and we also want a quick automated report. Hence, in this talk, a discussion will be carried out on a few AI and deep learning models that can generate text files based on a given input X-Ray image. That text file can help the actual radiologist to provide a better interpretation of the disease.
