Nuclear and cell shape characterisation in oral cancer/precancer

Project Description

Quantitative Pathology investigates problems in pathology using innovative, analytical methods to collect reliable, quantifiable and reproducible markers of disease. This is necessary to provide accurate, evidence-based diagnostic decisions and accurate prognostic parameters.

Many of the tools pioneered by our team are based on digital image processing / analysis with an ultimate goal of developing intelligent diagnostic instrumentation.

Funding Notes

We have a thriving international Researcher community and encourage applications from students of any nationality able to fund their own studies (Government scholarship), or who wish to apply for their own funding (e.g. Commonwealth Scholarships, Islamic Development Bank International PhD Scholarships, China Scholarship Council).

At present, we would only consider applications from prospective students with:
- a good biomedical or engineering/computing degree,
- good command of the English language as outlined in the postgraduate prospectus,
- competent with computers and data handling (ideally with Java programming skills),
- a source of funding to cover tuition fees and bench fees.
