Women in STEM (2022-2023)

Quam Id Leo Women in STEM Scholarships (2022-2023)

Middlesex University London is pleased to announce the British Council Scholarships for Women in STEM for the 2022/23 academic year.

In partnership with the British Council, Middlesex University London is offering six fully funded scholarships for female students studying on STEM subjects, aiming to support girls and women who are under-represented in STEM.


Quam Id Leo Machine Learning for Discovery of Pre-neoplastic signature in Mesothelioma (PRISM) (2020-2022)

This project is funded by The Cancer Research UK under Innovation Award and The PRISM project has received funding from CRUK-STFC Early Detection Innovation Award and is to develop a data repository and associated AI tools to improve the diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma. PRISM is led by Imperial College and has collaborators from Warwick University, King’s College London, Oxford University and Middlesex University.

Evolution as an Information Dynamic System (2009-2013)

EPSRC grant EP/H031936/1 (Roman Belavkin, John Aston (Warwick), Alastair Channon (Keel), Chris Knight (Manchester))

The project aims at developing better understanding of the laws of evolution using information dynamics theory. Heredity and mutation are viewed as parameters of an adaptive system, which vary according to changes in information about the environment and fitness. The project is in collaboration with John Aston (University of Warwick, Statistics), Alastair Channon (University of Keele, Computing and Mathematics) and Chris Knight (University of Manchester, Life Sciences).
