Geometric data science for cancer precision medicine
Dr Deepak Parashar has published a key research paper proposing a novel geometric framework of Hypersurfaces to describe multidimensional clinical trial designs of precision cancer therapy. The methods are a first cross-disciplinary perspective in utilising embedded Euclidean subspaces to visualise the trial design space of master protocols constituting multiple treatments, multiple tumour-types, and multiple mutations for targeted cancer therapy.
The approach paves the way for visualising multidimensional biomarker data, tumour-agnostic significant associations, integrating multimodal and multi-omic data, and generalisation to higher-dimensional innovative trial designs, offering oncologists guidance in targeting multiple therapies for sensitive groups of patients from diverse datasets.
Nearly three years on from the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, and despite significant progress in mitigating some of its worst predictions and effects, Covid-19 remains an ongoing concern for healthcare delivery, staff health and wellbeing and patient safety.

Covid isn’t over for people with terminal illnesses
Dr John MacArtney, who leads CRC’s Palliative Care theme, has developed a short public engagement film describing the ongoing Covid-19 presents to people with terminal illnesses. This builds on his large ESRC funded study looking at the impact of Covid-19 on hospices, including four reports for clinical practice looking at the pandemic’s effects on patients, carers, staff and senior managers, as well as a policy report developed in collaboration with Marie Curie.
The blog and film can be found here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/talkabout/articles/covid-isnt-over-terminal-illnesses/354907

£5m award to tackle health inequalities in Coventry through research
WMS and WBS are both involved in an exciting research project with Coventry City Council and partners to tackle health inequalities across the city through research.
£5m has been awarded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) to create a pioneering Health Determinants Research Collaboration (HDRC) in the city.
Coventry’s collaboration will undertake this ground breaking work and includes Coventry University, the University of Warwick, University College London, and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire as well as a wide range of partners within the community and voluntary sectors.
Paramjit who is the lead for WMS on the project said. "We are delighted to be working with Coventry City Council and partners on this exciting opportunity to address the underlying causes of widespread inequalities in our city. We hope to significantly contribute to effective solutions by embedding research culture within our partner organisations; enabling and empowering them to make a real impact on the lives of our local community.”

- Research led by University of Warwick psychologists shows that financial worries and sleep difficulties are consistently associated with poor mental health in students
- Based on surveys with 895 university students and 547 non-students, the research examined changes to poor mental health symptoms during the pandemic
- No significant difference in mental health risks between students and non-students of the same age
- Research reinforces the importance of utilising research expertise to better inform student support services
