Research Interests:

Dr. Lu has broad research experiences in clinical and basic biomedical sciences. His research interest concentrates on developing artificial intelligence (AI) methodologies and their application in translational medicine, particularly precision oncology. The ongoing research in his group spans a broad spectrum of translational informatics: using causal inference methods to understand cancer disease mechanisms, using probabilistic graphic models and deep learning models to studying cancer signaling pathways, using NLP technology to mine and annotate biomedical texts (publications and medical records), using AI techniques to facilitate clinical decision making.
