Maxwell Centre


We like to invite you to the second ‘Clinicians meet STEM Scientists’ event.  

Monday 22nd May 2017, 17:30-19:00 at the Maxwell Centre


Join the Early Detection programme of the CRUK Cambridge Centre for the second in a series of ideas sharing events to encourage collaboration between clinicians and basic scientists. These events build on our recently published infographics factsheets, which highlight key areas of physical sciences research in Cambridge that could in future improve early cancer detection.

Early detection of lung cancer – multidisciplinary challenges and opportunities


Dr Frank McCaughan: University Lecturer at the Department of Medicine, University of Cambridge and Honorary Consultant Physician, Cambridge University Hospitals. His laboratory research is focused on understanding the early driver events critical to the development of lung cancer and translating this knowledge into novel approaches to early detection and novel therapeutics or chemoprevention agents.

Dr Carola Schönlieb: Reader in Applied and Computational Analysis, head of the Cambridge Image Analysis (CIA) group at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP). Her area of expertise is mathematical image reconstruction and image analysis, designed and adapted to various application areas, among them biomedical imaging. In this context we work on high resolution image reconstruction for MR, PET, EM; image reconstruction and analysis for multi-modal imaging; object segmentation, tracking and motion analysis for various imaging modalities.
