Dr. Tariq Daouda specializes in applications at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence and
Biomedical sciences. He holds a bachelor’s in mathematics and Computer Science from the
Université de Lorraine, a Master’s in Machine Learning from Université de Montréal, and a
PhD in Bioinformatics also from the Université de Montréal. Dr. Daouda then moved to
Boston to pursue postdoctoral training, where he was affiliated to the Broad Institute,
Harvard Medical School, and the Massachusetts General Hospital. He recently joined the
University Mohammed VI Polytechnic to become head of AI for biomedical applications at
the Faculty of Medicine. His research focuses on the development of novel artificial
intelligence methods to improve our understanding of biology and accelerate the
development of clinical applications. Over the years he has worked on the identifications of
markers of cancer and infection at the surface of cells, the integration of different types of
single cell sequencing to create accurate maps of individual cell biology, and the analysis of
viral sequences to identify strains likely to transition between species.
