New funding announced for three Centres of Doctoral Training


Three Centres of Doctoral Training (CDT) at the Department of Computer Science have received new funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), to ‘develop the skills needed for UK prosperity’.

The CDTs will be in the areas of health data science, computational biology, and machine learning. The CDT in health data science will be based within the Oxford Big Data Institute (BDI).  Jim Davies, who will head up this new CDT, said ‘Thanks to the EPSRC and the BDI, we are able to deliver research training at the heart of the University’s medical campus, producing the data scientists we need to help transform health research and healthcare delivery.’
