Morphological aspects of Lichen Planus


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

At present, we would only consider applications from self-funded prospective students with:
- a good biomedical or engineering/computing degree, with interests in any of the areas outlined above,
- good command of the English language (written and spoken) 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 (note that tuition fees are different for Home and EU students than for International students).
