Project detail

Medical imaging is a clinically established tool to assess structural or (and) functional abnormalities in a respiratory system. It may provide valuable information beyond the human senses. This research project aims to apply computational modelling techniques in the development of an AI algorithm to improve the medical image-based pulmonary disease diagnosis. The activities will require significant computational modelling and algorithm analysis in close collaboration with a world-leading medical imaging research group and a global industry partner. This research will give a unique opportunity to explore the multi-disciplinary fields of Science, Engineering and Healthcare technology.

Funding Notes

Applicants who apply for this project will be considered on a competitive basis in March 2020 against candidates shortlisted for this and other projects with the advert reference beginning ‘SAM’. Early submission is advised, and a complete application must be received before the advert’s closing date.

If successful, candidates will be awarded a 3-year school studentship providing a tax-free stipend and tuition fees at the UK/EU rate (currently £15,009 and £4,327, respectively, in 2019-20 which are likely to rise by 2020/21). Non-EU-nationals may apply but the studentship will cover the cost of the international tuition fee only.

Successful candidates will be notified by 26 March 2020.
