Our research draws on areas such as big data, artificial intelligence, automated signal processing, advanced medical imaging, vision systems and learning algorithms to enable advances in diagnosis and treatment of illness and disease. We’re developing better medical implants to improve quality of life, and designing smarter, more precise surgical robots.
Our research activities include:
- Using modelling of ligaments, cartilage and bone to provide deeper insights into musculoskeletal disease and fracture healing.
- Combining artificial intelligence and imaging probe technology to design robots that can semi-autonomously navigate the body.
- Finding ways to enhance functional brain imaging techniques to improve the effectiveness of surgical resections.
