  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Continual learning (aka lifelong learning) refers to a problem on how a learning system learns multiple tasks in succession over the lifespan where later tasks do not degrade the performance of the system learned for the earlier tasks and, ideally, the system can leverage the knowledge learned in previous tasks to facilitate learning the new tasks better.

PhD Type

Osteoporosis is a common, degenerative skeletal disorder that increases the risk of fractures and causes significant morbidity and mortality.
  Development of Convolutional Neural Networks and Associated Error Estimation Techniques for Vertebral Segmentation in Axial Computed Tomography Image Slices
  Dr N Thacker, Dr P Bromiley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoporosis is a common skeletal disorder that increases the risk of fractures and causes significant morbidity and mortality. Vertebral fractures (VFs) are often an early manifestation of osteoporosis but are significantly under-diagnosed in clinical practice.
  Development of image analysis methods and software to study musculoskeletal diseases using artificial intelligence (AI)
  Dr Claudia Lindner, Prof T Cootes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Musculoskeletal (MSK) diseases affect an increasing number of the population globally. In the UK, on average 3 in 10 people are affected, which increases to 1 in 2 in the age group 65+.
  Digital manikins as a novel tool to measure self-reported pain in large-scale research studies
  Dr S Van der Veer, Prof W Dixon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Moderate to severe pain affects 1 in 5 adults. It is among the most prominent symptoms of musculoskeletal disease, and substantially affects the quality of life of people suffering from it.
  An investigation of psychological and clinical factors associated with the development of chronic or persistent pain in children and young people with inflammatory and non-inflammatory musculoskeletal conditions.
