We’ve won a £1.1 million EPSRC Healthcare Technologies Challenge Award

Posted on By Outreach

We have secured a £1.1 million grant to work on developing multidimensional endoscopy for early cancer detection.

The project will look to improve the use of endoscopes, long, flexible tubes with a light and video camera to detect oesophageal or lung cancers, by designing specialist video cameras. The cameras will be designed to detect properties of light that human eyes are blind to, and will also allow for quick analysis of tissue taken out of the body before it is sent to a pathologist to check for cancer.

Led by: Dr Sarah Bohndiek, University of Cambridge

Project partner: Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
