In December 2015, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) announced a £10 million investment in five new UK Research Centres which will explore how mathematics and statistics can help clinicians to tackle serious health challenges such as cancer, heart disease and antibiotic resistant bacteria. Specifically, researchers will develop new tools from predictive mathematical models to enable earlier diagnosis of chronic diseases such as epilepsy, and new systems to make clinical imaging more accurate and efficient.
The newly established EPSRC Centre for Mathematical and Statistical Analysis of Multimodal Clinical Imaging at the University of Cambridge aims to achieve synergies between applied mathematics and statistics through the focus on the analysis of clinical imaging, particularly that arising in neurological, cardiovascular and oncology imaging. The new Centre is a collaboration between mathematics, engineering, physics and biomedical scientists and clinicians. This centre is one of five funded by EPSRC, other's include the Liverpool Centre for Mathematics in Healthcare
This event will be an opportunity to celebrate the launch of this important research centre and for researchers from mathematics, statistics, engineering, physics and biomedicine to meet with healthcare planners, clinicians, policy makers and industry partners to discuss the research projects and challenges arising from the analysis of clinical imaging.
