Brightfield microscopy Images of tumor cells undergoing different modes of cell death were classified using deep transfer learning (DTL)1. This DTL training network will be combined with high-throughput pharmacological screening approaches using the Incucyte live cell imaging system microscope to identify novel anti-cancer therapeutics. Using images to identify novel modulators of cell death has the potential to significantly accelerate the experimental approach for anti-cancer testing in a cost-effective and rapid manner.
