Dr. Connie Hedeler



Research

I'm a Research Biomedical Data Engineer/Developer in the Bio-Health Informatics Group of the School of Computer Science at The University of Manchester, working on a collaborative project with Siemens Medical Solutions USA and on a project with the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). I've completed my PhD in Bioinformatics in the Faculty of Life Sciences, supervised by Kathryn Else and Norman Paton.
