Congratulations to our 4 PhD graduates of 2020
Congratulations to Simon Graham, Mary Shapcott, Muhammad Shaban and Navid Alemi Koohbanani on the successful defense of their PhD theses
The Warwick TIA team represented by Prof Nasir Rajpoot and Dr Shan Raza are delighted to be part of the EU-wide €70M BIGPICTURE project.
To take AI development in pathology to the next level, a European consortium combining leading European research centres, hospitals as well as major pharmaceutical industries, is going to develop a repository for the sharing of pathology data. The 6-year, €70M project called BIGPICTURE, will herald a new era in pathology.

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
