Research projects


Using Innovative solutions in digital pathology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to increase the rate of cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Health Risks in Urban Slums

Tackling climate-related health risks in urban slums: analysis of the challenge of integrating local and scientific knowledge.

Challenging Inequalities

Contributing an understanding of inequality as a driver of vulnerability in an international development context.


Investigating the key challenges of governance for Anthropogenic Global Catastrophic Risk (AGCRs).

Mass-marketing fraud

This EPSRC project develops novel techniques to detect and prevent mass-marketing fraud (MMF).


PRISMA has delivered a toolkit for companies that aspire to develop innovative products and services with which genuine societal needs are addressed and a contribution is made to both environmental and economic sustainability. Warwick worked with Warwick Manufacturing Group on 3 pilot projects: in connected vehicles; synthetic biology; and secure data-storage and exchange.


MiRTLE is the world’s first, high performance, long range, low cost, standoff “concealed threat” detection system for the protection of citizens and critical infrastructure.


Improving communication tools for law enforcement to prevent violent radicalisation.


IERG (Tom Sorell and Duncan Hine) have contributed teaching material to a distance taught course offered by the Institute of Risk Management on Digital Risk Managment.


      IDENTITY aims at consolidating the integration of multimedia forensics into forensic science. Multimedia forensics is concerned with the development of scientific methods to extract, analyse and categorize digital evidence derived from multimedia sources, such as imaging devices. For example, developing technologies to identify, categorise and classify the source of images and video, as well as to authenticate and verify the integrity of their content. Since the enabling technologies in multimedia forensics are similar to those used for identification and verification purposes in biometric forensics, the integration of these areas is seamless.


      The EU research project PAVE (Preventing and Addressing Violent Extremism through Community Resilience in the Western Balkans and the MENA) aims to tackle the global issue of radicalisation by examining its root causes and driving factors. Based on a comparative assessment of local communities with features of vulnerability or resilience to violent extremism across seven case study countries, the 13 international partner institutions will develop concrete policy recommendations to inform citizens and stakeholders within and beyond the regions under study.

      Moral Obligation, Epistemology and Public Health: The Case of Vaccine Hesitancy

      This two-year project, funded by the AHRC and the German Research Council (DFG), considers philosophical issues related to the rationality of vaccine opposition and hesitancy, and the question of how science communication should address vaccine hesitancy, especially in the face of campaigns of misinformation.

      Data Lakes: Emerging Ethical Issues

      This is a pump-priming project, funded under a Call that seeks to prepare the ground for more UK Humanities research in Artificial Intelligence. It builds on the ethics research contributed by IERG to the Innovate-UK funded PathLAKE project in computational pathology. This project concerns the use of large pathology data sets to train and test algorithms cancer diagnostics, prognostics and tumour-grading.
