University of Liverpool Doctoral Network in AI for Future Digital Health

The benefits that Artificial Intelligence (AI) can bring to Health Care are extensive. Examples include: point of care diagnosis, support for medical image analysis, speeding up the drug discovery process, analysis of infectious disease spread and patient monitoring through wearable devices.

The University of Liverpool Doctoral Network in AI for Future Digital Health is directed at creating and maintaining a community of AI health care professionals that can apply the latest research within AI to Health Care. The vision is that of a world-class centre providing high-quality doctoral training within the domain of AI for Future Digital Health.

Each available PhD project has been carefully co-created in collaboration with a health provider and/or a healthcare commercial partner so that the outcomes of the PhD research will be of immediate benefit. The network will be providing students with training, culminating in a PhD, in a collaborative environment that features, amongst other things, peer-to-peer and cohort-to-cohort based learning. On completion students will be well-placed to take up rewarding careers within the domain of AI and Digital Health.
