The EPSRC Centre for Mathematical and Statistical Analysis of Multimodal Clinical Imaging at the University of Cambridge is a collaboration between mathematics, engineering, physics and biomedical scientists and clinicians, and 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 centre is one of five funded by the EPSRC, following a £10 million investment funding mathematics and statistics to 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.
A key aim of this partnership is the delivery of high quality, multidisciplinary research that will help overcome some of the big challenges facing the NHS.
The Cambridge centre will enable mathematicians and statisticians to work closely with relevant stakeholders involved in the areas of clinical imaging from healthcare planning, clinical provision, policy making and industrial research across the UK. A key aim of this partnership is the delivery of high quality, multidisciplinary research that will help overcome some of the big challenges facing the NHS.
