i Lab 1 - Medical Informatics

Untitled Page

Our goal is to improve human health by empowering people to co-manage their own wellbeing by using their mobile devices.

With intelligent self-diagnosis they'll generate learning materials to develop understanding about diseases, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. We develop biological system models, perform data analysis and deliver research-focused intelligent solutions for individuals and institutions.

Current projects

TB-Test

TB-Test aims to develop a mobile enabled Point-of-Care (POC) platform to detect Tuberculosis by capturing and analysing images for urine and saliva samples. Our research is in partnership with Universiti Putra Malaysia and is supported by the Newton Fund.

Knowledge Transfer Partnership - MGE

ARITI have recently agreed a knowledge transfer partnership with MGE. MGE is based in Colchester, Essex. They design and manufacture medical equipment. This partnership will assist MGE in embedding the capability to develop and commercialise a new 'smart' assisted medical pump that facilitates self-assessment and self-diagnosis of patients. This will diversify and enhance MGE's product range and internal capabilities, allowing the company to create a long term strategic advantage.

If you are interested in a knowledge transfer partnership with us, please contact Prof Alamgir Hossain.

SmartLink

SmartLink is an external co-operation project funded under Erasmus Mundus Action 2 (EMA2). The project focuses on fostering international cooperation between nine European Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and 11 HEIs in emerging Asian countries through the promotion of mobility at all level of studies and training for students, PhD candidates, Post-doctoral researchers, academics and administrative staff.

For further information about working within our i Lab1 and the SmartLink programme, please contact Prof Alamgir Hossain.

FUSION

FUSION is an external co-operation project funded under Erasmus Mundus. This project aims to foster partnerships of emerging Asian countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan, China, India, and Thailand) with the EU countries (Bulgaria, France Germany, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Sweden, and UK) to reinforce the existing collaborations developed through the EU funded projects. The key objective of the FUSION consortium is to enhance the capacity for international cooperation between universities in the Asian and EU countries by facilitating transfer of people, know-how, culture and best practice in training the next generation of researchers and academic staff.
