Marcelle Lopez

Marcelle G. M. Lopes was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1992. She graduated in Electronics Engineering (2018) in the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and received the MSc (2020) in Biomedical Engineering in such University. She was in the Biomedical Engineering Program of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil, from 2013 to 2020.

Reason for joining

At EVIDENCE's program, her project is based on previous research conducted by the University of Saarland group. Such researches deal with the classification of red blood cells according to their shapes, and the main steps of the research are:

  • preparation and acquisition of microcopy of cellular data
  • treatment of cellular data for inclusion in an artificial neural network
  • implementation and application of the artificial neural network for classification

In this regard, her project will focus on adding new forms for the fixation of red blood cells (RBC) through light, on optimizing the modeling algorithm of the red blood cell membrane so that it is correctly measured and its 3D model and on improving the routines implemented in the development of the neural network.
