Research description
Dr. Arthur's research interests include several biomedical informatics domains.  He is involved in the computational organization and analysis of genomic data obtained primarily from research data derived from the study of lymphomas and leukemias by Dr. Charles W. Caldwell's laboratory, but also utilizing public datasets as well. Specific areas of interest include the identification of dysfunctional neoplastic alterations of transcription factor activity and cellular pathways and the development of new tumor taxonomies based on these changes.  Dr. Arthur also has a longstanding interest in the development of decision support systems for surgical pathology and is evaluating means of representing, managing and interpreting genomic and proteomic knowledge in relation to image analysis of histopathologic slides.
