IXICO becomes partner of new medical imaging and AI centre in the UK

Published: 5-Mar-2019

The new centre will develop artificial intelligence algorithms from NHS medical images

Neuroimaging analytics company IXICO has teamed up with the London Medical Imaging & Artificial Intelligence Centre, the newly open £10m consortium of academic, NHS and industry partners led by King’s and based at St Thomas’ Hospital.

The centre has been established as part of the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, delivered through UK Research and Innovation.

Giulio Cerroni, Chief Executive of IXICO, said: "The development and application of artificial intelligence technology will enable IXICO to develop highly valued, innovative solutions to our biopharmaceutical clients in support of their neuroscience clinical development programmes. We are looking forward to collaborations with other leaders across this expanding field of research.”

Led by King’s College London, the new centre will develop and train sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms from NHS medical images and patient data to provide tools for clinicians to speed up and improve diagnosis and care across a number of patient pathways including dementia, heart failure and cancer.

The centre will focus on transformation and value-based healthcare, and how advanced imaging and AI technologies can be used to improve the patient journey.

As well as government funding, the consortia partners have also made significant investments to leverage UK research strengths and clinical knowledge into becoming a leading industrial player in AI and healthcare.

IXICO will contribute its expertise in neuroimaging and data analysis and benefit from leveraging the centre’s unique infrastructure and collaborative framework to accelerate development of its innovative AI analytics solutions to support improved decision-making in neuroscience clinical development.
