Biomedical Informatics, Imaging and Healthcare Technologies

WMG conducts research in a range of areas under the heading of Biomedical Informatics, Imaging and Healthcare Technologies. This broadly includes

Our work with the NHS and other public and private sector organisations is channeled through the Institute of Digital Healthcare (IDH), a five year partnership with NHS, WMG and Warwick Medical School which aims to improve people's health and wellbeing through the development, evaluation and use of innovative digital technologies and services.

WMG employs experts in biomedical and information engineering, health psychologists, a statistician and clinicians with public health, hospital medicine and community health backgrounds. Some have spent several years working in the NHS while others have significant industry as well as academic experience. Our focus ranges from whole organisations and care pathways to individual clinicians and patients down to capture and interpretation of biomedical signals. This means that we can understand and analyse most health related problems, then develop, evaluate and deploy innovative digital solutions.

Current Projects

  • C3-Cloud - C3-Cloud is a €5m EU Horizon 2020 project aiming to transform current care models that are fragmented and address chronic conditions in isolation. C3-Cloud is an ICT infrastructure, enabling a patient-centric approach, considering the unique circumstances of each patient, taking into account all their conditions and needs. The four-year project includes 12 partners in 7 countries, including public health care providers, industry, and research organisations and is led by the University of Warwick.
  • TRANSFoRm (Translational Research and Patient Safety in Europe) - Funded by the European Commission, the TRANSFoRm project will develop rigorous, generic methods for the integration of Primary Care clinical and research activities, to support patient safety and clinical research. The anticipated impact is improved patient safety by speeding translational research, quicker and more economic recruitment and follow up of RCTs, and enhanced uptake of eHR systems that offer support for clinical care and research.
  • Transforming Statistical Methodology for Neuroimaging Meta-Analysis - This Wellcome Trust Fellowship aims to develop new techniques for sharing Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) data and analysing that shared data. The software and standards developed will make it easier for researchers to share their data, thus allowing more access and collaboration.
  • The Human Brain as a Complex System: This EPSRC-funded project will investigate the relationship between structural and functional networks in the thalamocortical system and will develop a comprehensive framework for combining information from different techniques.
