I believe in the power of technology and artificial intelligence for radical improvement in medicine.

Věřím v budoucnost, kde jsme schopni radikálně zlepšit zdravotnictví a medicínu pomocí umělé inteligence.

Karina Zadorozhny pursues a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Mathematics at Northwestern University


Karina’s research career started when at the age of 14, she realized there exist ways to prolong length and quality of life.

Instead of attending high school, she started working full time in a research group, studying DNA damage and repair pathways, at Masaryk University in Brno and later studied processes underlying aging at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in California.

Since then, her results were published in journals like Nature, Molecular Cell and Cell Reports and she presented her work at international conferences as well as competitions like Intel ISEF 2017 in Los Angeles where she won First Prize Award and Best of Category Awards or First Prize Award at European Union Contest for Young Scientists 2017 in Tallinn.

Realising the power of artificial intelligence for biomedicine, Karina decided to pursue bachelor’s degree in computer science and mathematics at Northwestern University, and she is currently doing research in machine learning for cancer detection and patient survival predictions at Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago.
