Short Research Projects
Students are required to do a twelve-week project, chosen from one of the three CDT themes: cancer therapeutics and delivery, modelling for personalized healthcare, information-driven healthcare.
Information Driven Healthcare (IDH) is a broad term, but does include biomedical instrumentation, signal processing, and e-health research. Broadly speaking, it is the use of any digital information to provide clinical decision support, diagnostics, and outcome/event prediction.
The project must be undertaken in a spin-out/industry or a clinical department and, in most cases, will form the basis of students' PhD (DPhil) research. Projects are supervised by the Bio-Medical Engineering faculty in conjunction with Medical Science departments, university spin-outs and/or international collaborator laboratories.
