Covid19 Update

The Group is on lockdown but work continues:

Seminars are continuing online

Some staff are volunteering their hardware and data analysis skills at Hillingdon hospital

A collaboration with the MHRA and CPRD will result in synthetic primary care data being made available for Covid19 research.

Biraja Ghoshal has been exploring his methods for identifying Covid19 from lung images: https://arxiv.org/abs/2003.10769

IDA Seminar (Virtual) 15th April 2020

IDA seminars will continue in spite of the UK lockdown. Last week’s was held successfully with three talks from successful IDA 2020 submissions.

IDA 2020 going online

Due to the ongoing Corona virus restrictions IDA 2020 will be held as a virtual conference online on the original dates. As a result it will be free to all! More information will be posted here nearer the time: IDA2020
