Case studies

Chris Hollis analysing brain pattern

Our clinical-academic collaborative partnership is the foundation of our success. From mature technologies already on the market and improving patient care, to a vibrant spinout company portfolio to our emerging technologies, we have an excellent track record of supporting the pathway to clinical adoption. 

We showcase a short selection of our exciting technologies here. For a bigger selection of over 40 of our projects, search by clinical or technical area below.

Mathematical modelling to revolutionise cancer treatment

Mathematical modelling to revolutionise cancer treatment

Description
Mathematicians and scientists across top universities applied mathematical modelling to a revolutionary cancer treatment to optimise outcomes. This research demonstrates that mathematical modelling can be used to design, and maximise the efficacy of, combined therapeutic approaches in cancer.
MRI multiple sclerosis

MRI multiple sclerosis

Description
A research team at Nottingham has found a way to use clinical MRI to distinguish between Multiple Sclerosis lesions and other brain white spots which are found in Multiple Sclerosis. Press release from February 2016 detailing MRI diagnosis of multiple sclerosis
