Course content

The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Biomedical Artificial Intelligence grows from the realisation that AI technologies will play a central role leveraging data to transform our understanding and practice of biomedicine. Delivering such a step change will require training a new cadre of scientists operating at the intersection of computer science and biomedicine, building AI systems which are effective, ethical and empowering to scientists and users alike.

The CDT offers an interdisciplinary training programme covering technical AI skills, biomedical foundations and individually tailored training on understanding the societal aspects of Biomedical AI. It builds on a collaboration between several centres of excellence within the University with a long history of collaboration: the School of Informatics, the School of Biological Sciences, the MRC Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine, the Usher Institute of Population Health Science and Informatics, and the School of Social and Political Sciences. Together, these institutes provide a unique breadth and depth of expertise, as well as state-of-the-art computational and experimental facilities, to support the CDT cohorts.
Additionally, leading clinical, industrial and international academic partners will provide students with opportunities for hands-on application in a broad variety of contexts.
