About the Project

We invite a highly motivated PhD candidate who is enthusiastic about developing an AI algorithm for medical image analysis. This project will focus on images of human lungs. The AI will assess functional impairments induced by the onset and progression of lung diseases such as COVID-19, COPD, Asthma. The successful candidate will gain knowledge and skills through collaboration with world-class research teams in medical imaging, computational modelling, and clinical science.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreaks have a significant impact on global society. This research tackles the burden of severe lung disease by introducing a new AI-based algorithm that analyses lung function in medical images. With the aid of AI, clinicians will be able to interpret lung images accurately related to patient symptoms. This study will also help us better understand the dynamic behaviour of lungs with COVID-19 and other respiratory disorders. Furthermore, the valuable information acquired from the advanced image analysis AI in this project may lead to new therapeutic options. To train the AI, we will use state-of-the-art lung functional imaging and image-based computational modelling techniques. Consequently, this multidisciplinary research project will require a considerable amount of computational programming, modelling, and data analysis in close collaboration with medical imaging and clinical science research experts.
