CAUSALPATH is an ERC (European Research Council) Consolidator Grant awarded through the IDEAS programme for the research proposal titled ‘Next Generation Causal Analysis: Inspired by the Induction of Biological Pathways from Cytometry Data’.
CAUSALPATH aims to
- advance causal discovery theory, methods, and tools in directions that are practical, useful, robust, and accurate in real settings, thus creating a Next Generation Causal Analysis paradigm important to all data-analysis sciences and
- allow the accurate, efficient, personalized induction of formal, quantitative causal models of biological pathways from cytometry datasets coupled with other omics data and prior knowledge; the primary focus will be the pathways involved in the differentiation of human T-cells.
