Wednesday June 13th, 2018

Up to £50 million is available to build a network of centres for digital pathology and medical imaging, via the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (June 13th).Government Opportunities

UK organisations can apply for a share of up to £50 million through a funding competition to develop a network of centres of excellence in digital pathology and medical imaging technology.

Run under the Industrial Strategy
This competition is part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund in the challenge area: from data to early diagnosis and precision medicine.

The funding – which is provided by UK Research and Innovation and delivered by Innovate UK – will maximise the UK’s potential to diagnose diseases earlier and identify the best interventions for patients, as well as developing new treatments.

One of the activities in this challenge focuses on digital pathology, radiology and diagnostics. It will help to advance the digitisation of these important areas of diagnosis, increase the efficiency and quality of the review process and get new precision treatments to patients earlier.
