Modelling and Predicting the Progression of Chronic Kidney Disease

An overarching objective of this MRC research is to revisit the problem of modelling the progression of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) using state-of-the-art machine learning techniques and methodologies.


Biomarkers for enhanced vaccines immuno safety

BioVacSafe - Biomarkers for enhanced vaccines immunosafety - is a 5 years project funded by Innovative Medicine initiative (IMI). The goal of BioVacSafe is to develop cutting edge tools to speed up and improve the testing and monitoring of vaccine safety, both before and after release to the market. By bringing together for the first time three of Europe's leading vaccine development and manufacture companies as well as top experts from academic institutions and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), the project will ultimately accelerate the development and introduction of a new generation of safer, more effective vaccines. By sharing their expertise, the BioVacSafe partners have a unique opportunity to make progress in this important area.

CAFE Project

The Competitive Advantage by Safety

The Competitive Advantage by Safety (CAFE) project is coordinated by the Kotka Maritime Research Centre, Finland. The aim of the CAFE project is to examine can the maritime sector achieve competitive advantage by focusing on safety aspects. The major focus is on operational safety which is expected to both directly and indirectly influence the opportunities in the competitive European surface transport sector.


A machine learning decision support platform for Innovate UK

The Volition platform is a secure cloud based web application designed to help Innovate UK make better use of its existing operational data using machine learning (ML). It will be driven by a blend of ML capabilities, natural language processing (NLP), advanced information retrieval techniques and data visualisation. The Synoptica approach is unique in that we automatically find and extract additional data from the web from a variety of structured and unstructured sources and use this to enhance the ML analysis of Innovate UK’s existing data.
