Project title: Biomedical Semantic Data Integration and Management

Publication date: 9.09.2022

Closing date: 09.10.2022

Level of education: Master's degree

Hours: 40 hours per week

Salary indication: up to 8000 PLN gross monthly

Supervisors:

Sano: dr. Ahmed Abdeen Hamed (Clinical Data Science Research Group Leader)

Project start: October/November 2022

The position is for Sano's Clinical Data Science team. Our group develops a new generation of semantically integrated databases for clinical and biomedical. Our system will build on recent Big Data workflow technologies to integrate using a multitude of very large data sets, including text mining results, mutation databases, internal and external -omics high-throughput sets, ontologies, and clinical data.  

The project sets out to provide an ultimately fine-grained implementation of parsing, extracting, integrating, and querying classes of ontologies which can be processed efficiently and have other desirable computational properties. The overall aim of this approach is to enable ontology engineers to design and customize ontologies that strike an ideal balance between the knowledge provided and efficient processing, in this way developing ontology-mediated querying to its full potential.

The position is especially adequate for Postdocs, PhD students or engineers who want to learn about, apply and further develop workflow technologies for scalable data integration in the exciting field of clinical data science and analytics.

Sano MSc Project

Project title: Accurate sensing and detecting a physical or behavioral health conditions using medical and consumer grade wearables.

Publication date: 06.09.2022

Closing date: 21.09.2022

Level of education: Undergraduate (BSc, BEng)

Hours: approx. 16 working hours per week/40% FTE

Salary indication: stipend for up to 2500 PLN gross monthly

Supervisors:

Dr. Maciej Malawski (Extreme Scale Data and Computing Research Group Leader)

Dr. Tomasz Trzciński (Warsaw University of Technology)

Degree awarding institution: AGH

Project start: September/October 2022

Mobile health (mHealth) applications provide support to patients outside of clinic. They are commonly paired with wearable devices which enable continuous health monitoring and facilitate timely intervention. Nevertheless patients frequently perceive medical wearables as difficult to use and abandon their adoption [1]. Consumer-grade wearables are more widely available and are focused more on the user-friendly design, nevertheless, their physiological signal tracking quality might be varying[2]. Apple watch is a consumer-grade watch that has been also medically approved.

In this project, the student will develop mhealth application for iOS and Apple watch and conduct comparative assessment of usability and signal quality extracted from multiple medical and consumer-grade devices.

Project in collaboration with dr Tomasz Trzcinski, Warsaw University of Technology.

Sano PhD Student

Project title: Haptically-enhanced VR/AR for Improved Information Capture and Exchange in Medical/Social Environments

Publication date: 14.07.2022

Closing date: 1.08.2022

Level of education: Master's degree

Hours: 40 hours per week

Salary indication: up to 8000 PLN gross monthly

Supervisors:

Sano: Dr. Przemysław Korzeniowski

Sano: Dr. Arkadiusz Sitek

University of Sheffield: Dr. John Fenner

Project start: September 2022 (but depends on Candidate’s availability)

Degree Awarding Institution: University of Sheffield

This project will investigate the application of state-of-the virtual and augmented reality technologies (VR/AR) in hospital and/or operating room settings. In particular, the project will augment VR/AR with cost-effective accessible haptic technology (sense of touch), which has the capacity to modify everyday clinical practice.

The research aim is to develop a prototype system, which seamlessly integrates with the real clinical environment. As a proof-of-concept, we propose to start with augmenting an angiography suite (CathLab). You will enhance daily-clinical practice of radiographers and interventional cardiologists with haptically-enabled VR/AR surgical planning and/or training tools. 

The effectiveness of this strategy will be evaluated through relevant metrics and questionnaires to judge impact. A successful outcome will promote refinement and urge further acceptance (i.e. translation) within broader medical and technical environments.

We are looking for candidates with an enthusiasm for research, multidisciplinary collaboration and tackling challenging problems through teamwork. We are targeting candidates with an MSc in Computer Science, GameDev or similar,  but we would also consider exceptional STEM students providing that they have appropriate Computer Science skills. Ideal skills would include: programming (C#, C, C++ and/or visual scripting), 3D engines (Unity3D and/or Unreal Engine) and knowledge of git. Nice to have would be 3D modelling skills and/or CAD (Fusion, Solidworks, Blender, Maya and/or 3dsmax) and 3D printing.

You do not need to have a strong background in VR/AR or haptics, but willingness to learn basic concepts and definitions is a requirement.

Sano PhD Student - Project title: Applications of machine learning and deep learning in medical imaging and digital pathology

7/4/2022

Sano PhD Student

Project title: Applications of machine learning and deep learning in medical imaging and digital pathology

Publication date: 4.07.2022

Closing date: 1.08.2022

Level of education: Master's degree

Hours: 40 hours per week

Salary indication: up to 8000 PLN gross monthly

Supervisors:

Sano: Dr. Arkadiusz Sitek

Project start: August 2022

Degree Awarding Institution: AGH

Imaging technology used in medicine made enormous progress in recent decades and is now commonly used to detect, diagnose, and monitor almost all diseases. With increasing sophistication of the technology the amount of data being produced in medical imaging is staggering. Despite the progress in technology and the quality of imaging data being produced, the interpretation is still done predominantly by radiologists - an approach that has not significantly changed in decades. All healthcare systems experience a shortage of qualified radiologists. Substantial workloads contribute to potential misinterpretations, long waiting times for results, radiologist burnouts, etc.

The goal of the thesis is to develop machine learning techniques that would assist radiologists in their work. This includes worklist prioritization, image quality improvements, automatic interpretation, missed/incidental findings, automatic measurements, etc. Multimodal machine learning, deep learning, radiomics, and classical image and signal processing algorithms will be used. This work will be done with a close collaboration with radiologists and/or other physicians who will advise on clinical significance of the project.
