We have a portfolio of health sector related projects - based around use of digital technologies - primarily software tools - to
manage and extract value from digitised health related data.
Some of our health sector related projects include:
- Image processing and the use of specialist devices such as Graphical Processing Units (GPUS) and development of parallel
software to exploit them, to accelerate feature detection in medical imagery.
- Management of complex medical data using hgraph databases and algorithms drawn from graph
and network science.
- Sports and Health data Analytics projects, led by Dr Alex Turner
- Mobile device App Development for a large local Health infrastructure provider, assisting in managing pre-trial patient
suitability data for clinical trials. We are developimng a range of domain specific programming
languages and associated support tools that allow clinicians and trial managers to configure and develop Apps quickly and simply
without specialist mobile device programming knowledge or experience.
- 3d-printing of clinical and surgical components cancer research and image processing and gpus
- Visualising complex data overlays using Augmented Reality (AR) techniques for both factory use in constructing complex
high value products such as turbine blades, and also in operational and maintenance operations deploying workers in remote and
dangerous environments such as on offshore wind turbine installations.
There are ongoing opportunities to work with us in the area of digital health informatics through: contract research and
development; collaborative grant funded work; student work placements or student research internships or postgraduate study.
