Cancer Research UK: Professor Nasir Rajpoot awarded funding to use machine learning to improve the early detection of oral cancer
Congratulations to Professor Nasir Rajpoot!
Cancer Research UK is funding a study to examine the use of machine learning to assist pathologists and improve the early detection of oral cancer.
"We are very excited to work on this project with Dr Khurram and his team at Sheffield. Early detection of cancer is a key focus area of research in our lab and this award by CRUK adds to the portfolio of research at the TIA lab on early detection of cancer.
The pilot project will pave the way towards the development of a tool that can help identify pre-malignant changes in oral dysplasia, crucial for the early detection of oral cancer. Successful completion of this project carries significant potential for saving lives and improving patient healthcare provision." -- Professor Nasir Rajpoot
