This is a broad theme designed to cover a wide remit of health-related Engineering research and to link the research institute to work within the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Three main topic areas are identified:
Examples of recent projects include –
- Image based machine learning for automated identification and classification of genetic mutations in micronucleus assays for genotoxicity screening – joint project with GSK.
- Advanced interpretation of wearable signals through a modelling-based characterisation of a soldier’s cardiovascular physiology – joint project with Dept. of Sports & Exercise Science, funded by DASA.
- Multi-analyte prognostic and diagnostic screening in blood and skin for Alzheimer's disease - MRC (UK)-AMED (Japan) grant with Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology.
