Carpenter Lab

Welcome to the Carpenter Lab website

The Carpenter Lab is based at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. Our research group develops advanced methods and software tools to quantify and mine the rich information present in cellular images to yield biological discoveries. Our laboratory is best known for our open source software packages CellProfiler and CellProfiler Analyst, but our main focus these days is profiling: we are using advanced machine learning methods, including deep learning, to identify morphological patterns in cell populations, to probe the causes and cures for disease. The wider scientific computing community has recognized us for our major contributions to popular open source applications and libraries, including ImageJ, TensorFlow, scikit-image, and scikit-learn.
