UKRI Artificial Intelligence Centre for Doctoral Training in Biomedical Innovation

We are Training Inter-Disciplinary Scientists to Innovate in Biomedical Artificial Intelligence Research

The greatest challenge to realising the potential of artificial intelligence in the biomedical domain is its translation into real-world use. We have co-created an AI Centre for Doctoral Training in Biomedical Innovation (AI4BI) to produce inter-disciplinary researchers with both technical skills and domain knowledge, and with experience delivering innovation into the public and private sectors.


Applications to join the programme in September 2024 are now open.

Please go to our application pages to learn more about the CDT and the application process.


The CDT in AI4BI is hosted in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh.

Students will be based in the award winning Informatics Forum & Bayes Centre buildings alongside a vibrant community of over 280 academic and research staff and over 2000 taught and research students. We are the largest computing science department in the UK and one of the largest in Europe.


You will undertake innovative research co-designed with external patterns to meet real world challenges.

Our research is organised into four research themes. AI for Biomedical Innovation in :-

  • Genomic Medicine
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Biomedical Imaging
  • Biomedical & Health Informatics

Find out more about our research themes here.


You will be trained across a wide range of topics in artificial intelligence, biomedical & health science, high performance computation & software engineering, and responsible innovation & entrepreneurship
