Chemical imaging and transcriptomic data fusion for rapid precision subtyping and recurrence prediction in colorectal cancer


   Graduate Research School Office

  Dr Aidan Meade  Monday, August 08, 2022  Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

Colorectal cancer (CRC) accounts for almost 1.15 million new cases and almost 577000 deaths each year. In this project chemical spectroscopic imaging will be employed to develop a pipeline for CRC disease subtyping and prediction of recurrence in stage II/II CRC patients. The project is a collaboration with Prof. Jochen Prehn at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and Dr. Simon McDade at Queen’s University Belfast. The project will develop computational approaches for integration and interpretation of chemical imaging, clinical, biochemical and -omics data and will include a 12-month period of secondment within the laboratory of Prof. Prehn.

AICRIstart includes a Career Restart strand, where eligible applicants must have undertaken a career break in research. This will encourage applications from those who may have for various reasons, e.g. caring responsibilities, not been able to engage in research.  Applicants under this strand will be assessed on a case-by-case basis to ensure fairness for all applicants. Applicants who intend to apply under this strand should clearly indicate this on the application.
