SMQB secure Research England funding to involve the public!

Published: Posted on

Two teams from the Centre for Systems Modelling & Quantitative Biomedicine have secured funding through the Research England QR Enhancing Research and Knowledge Exchange Funding Programme:

  • Atif Shahzad, John Terry, Luke Tait and Liam Grover (HTI) received ~£41K to develop a prototype of an affordable, easy-to-apply EEG headset to revolutionise diagnosis and management of epilepsy, in collaboration with the SME Neuronostics and their Lived Experience Group.
  • Eder Zavala and Caroline Gillett received ~£31K to improve access for patient groups to participate and engage in research interfacing mathematics and biomedicine. A workshop will help provide skills training for patient groups and researchers and develop best practice guidelines for patient engagement in research based upon a constructive dialogue with the community.

Both projects will work with public groups to ensure future SMQB research is as relevant and useful as possible to those affected by the medical conditions studied within the Centre.

Congratulations to both teams!
