Background

The EPSRC Centre for Mathematical Imaging in Healthcare (CMIH) will hold its 2nd Industry engagement day in October 2017. This will aim to showcase the research that is being carried out at the Centre and will present an opportunity to hear in detail about some of the current project collaborations, other industry challenges and explore new potential collaborations.

This event follows the previous industry and academic engagement events delivered in October 2016 and April 2017.

The Centre was launched in March 2016, following the announcement in December 2015 from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) of a £10 million investment in five new UK Research Centres. The remit of the Centres is to explore how mathematics and statistics can help clinicians to tackle serious health challenges such as cancer, heart disease and antibiotic resistant bacteria.

CMIH is based at the University of Cambridge and aims to achieve synergies between applied mathematics and statistics through the focus on the acquisition and analysis of clinical imaging, particularly that arising in neurological, cardiovascular and oncology imaging. It is a collaboration between mathematics, engineering, physics and biomedical scientists and clinicians.

Aims and Objectives

The Cambridge Centre enables 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.

This user engagement day will provide an update on some of the research being carried out and will feature presentations from CMIH Industry Partners, including GSK and Toshiba Medical Visualization Systems. A number of industry challenges and potential new collaborations will be highlighted in an elevator pitch session. A poster exhibition will also run during the lunch and the drinks/networking session.

This event will be of interest to researchers working in the field of analysis of clinical imaging and also to healthcare planners, clinicians, policy makers and industry partners to discuss the research projects and challenges arising from the area. It presents a great opportunity for knowledge exchange and networking between senior scientists from areas such as mathematics, statistics, engineering, physics and biomedicine and relevant individuals from industry and government.

A provisional programme will be available soon.
