Beth Cimini, Ph.D.

Beth Cimini leads the Cimini Lab within the Imaging Platform of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. Her team works with biologists to help them create image analysis workflows and makes the open-source image analysis software CellProfiler. In 2020, she was named a CZI Imaging Scientist for her work on making open-source image analysis tools more accessible to the bioimaging community and for her creation of a postdoctoral training program in bioimage analysis.

Cimini’s lab started at the Broad in 2021, after 5 years as a postdoc then computational biologist in Anne Carpenter’s lab at the Broad Institute. She holds a Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology from the Blackburn Lab at the University of California-San Francisco and a B.A. in biochemistry and molecular biology from Boston University.
