Limerick Institute of Technology Faculty of Applied Science, Engineering and Technology

Full time October, January MSc, Research Only 2 years

About the course

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Artificial intelligence and advancing image analysis software programs may help the medical field in progressing subtype characterisation of tumour types and help identify optimum treatment paths at a case by case level. Histo-pathology is the analysis of tissue to identify or determine changes due to a disease. Morphological inspection of tumour tissue under a microscope is the gold standard in evaluating pathology and classifying tumour stage and prognosis. To progress this process to a precision medicine reality, digitalisation of tumour images and computational analysis can help.

Deadline for applications: 14th of October 2019
