The QIBIOMED Doctoral Training Programme, funded by the MRC, aims to train the next generation of scientists in Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science. The programme includes the following imaging-related research projects based at the University of Dundee:

AI-Spot-Dementia (AISDA): developing machine learning algorithms to predict the risk of dementia for patients with Type 2 Diabetes (Supervisors: Dr Jianguo Zhang, Prof Douglas Steele, Prof Manuel Trucco, Dr Alex Doney)

Automatic, reliable detection of nocturnal epileptic seizures in real time via machine learning of multi-modal data (Supervisors: Prof Manuel Trucco, Prof Stephen McKenna)

Discovery of composite biomarkers and the role on the retina in risk prediction for systemic diseases using deep learning (Supervisors: Prof Manuel Trucco, Dr Alex Doney)

Stratifying Patients by Drug Response in a large diabetic cohort using deep learning (Supervisors: Prof Manuel Trucco, Prof Ewan Pearson, Dr Jianguo Zhang, Prof Stephen McKenna)

Use of Machine Learning and Computer Vision to detect Cerebral Microbleeds in SWI MRI (Supervisors: Dr Jianguo Zhang, Dr Alex Doney, Prof Stephen McKenna)
