Tomaszewski currently serves as Professor and Chair of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences at the University of Buffalo. With over 30 years of experience in pathology, Tomaszewski’s keynote presentation will be extremely insightful.

Before Tomaszewski worked at the University of Buffalo, he served a 28-year tenure at the University of Pennsylvania as a professor and held numerous leadership positions there. The research he conducts focuses on the application of quantitative image analysis, computer vision, and machine learning to diagnostic problems in prostate and other cancers.
