Quinn Wright

BSc. Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, UBCO 2017
BSc. Computer Science, UBCO 2021

Projects:

  • De-identification, curation, and migration of large volume DICOM imaging data to AWS

I was born in Kelowna and appreciate the what the Okanagan Valley has to offer! I’ve been interested in pursuing a career in the medical field for quite some time, but decided to take a few years off after my first degree and try my childhood dream of cooking for a living. That completely changed once I started programming, and now I’m very excited to be involved with the Early Detection Research Group in a technology focused role. I’m a bit of a generalist and tend to have a new hobby every few months, but some constants are food and wine, reading, and looking for great new music to enjoy.

Mitch Wiebe

BSc Physics, UBCO 2020
MSc Medical Physics, UBCO 2022

Projects:

  • Tomohistology/ Lung RP
  • Deep Learning for Differential Diagnosis of Lung Cancer

Mitch is a recent graduate from UBCO with a BSc in Physics and will be moving into an MSc in Medical Physics this fall. He has contributed to projects that endeavour to predict high risk patients of radiation pneumonitis and detect lung cancer in its early stages. This summer his efforts will be focussed on using machine learning for the early detection of lung cancer. Outside of school and research, Mitch enjoys skateboarding, biking downtown, and snowboarding.
