Projects led by Macquarie University researchers have been awarded more than $6.7 million in the latest round of National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Ideas Grants.
Five of the grants go to projects led by researchers from the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Human Sciences, with the sixth from the Faculty of Science and Engineering.
Amongst these, a team led by Professor Antonio Di Ieva, and including Dr Sidong Liu, Professor John Magnussen and Professor Benoit Liquet, received $1,556,663. Their five-year project, ‘Computational analysis and artificial intelligence in brain tumour imaging: towards the augmented diagnostics of the future’, will aim to improve clinical outcomes by using computer models, including AI, to augment expert diagnosis of brain tumours.
Congratulations to the teams for this fantastic achievement!
