Wednesday 23rd October 2019 to Thursday 24th October 2019

Isaac Newton Institute

Cambridge,
United Kingdom

Background

The EPSRC Centre for Mathematical Imaging in Healthcare (CMIH) held an engagement event in October 2019. This aimed to showcase the research that is being carried out at the Centre and presented an opportunity to hear in detail about some of the current project collaborations, other industry challenges and explore new potential collaborations.

This event followed previous industry and academic engagement events delivered over the past three years.
 
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 data, particularly arising from neurological, cardiovascular and oncology imaging. It is a true collaboration between mathematics, engineering, physics and biomedical scientists and clinicians.

Aims and Objectives

CMIH 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 event focussed on artificial intelligence and provided an update on some of the research projects and collaborations taking place in the CMIH. It featured presentations from CMIH researchers and Industry Partners, as well as other academics and end users in the public sector and industry. A number of industry challenges and collaborations were highlighted in an elevator pitch session.
 
The event was of interest to researchers working in the field of acquisition and 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 presented the 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.
 

Poster Session

All delegates were invited to exhibit a poster. Students and early career researchers (within 7 years of completing their last degree) were particularly encouraged to bring a poster and discuss their work at an exhibition that ran during the lunch and networking sessions. A prize was awarded to Richard Shaw from University College London for the most enlightening poster by a student/ early career researcher.
