This International Transdisciplinary Consortium is led by Professor Regent Lee at Oxford University’s Nuffield Department of Surgical sciences. He is a UK Research Innovation Future Leaders Fellow and Associate Professor of Vascular Surgery. The Oxford team further includes Professor Vicente Grau, Professor of Engineering Science at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering. Their team developed the pioneering technology (CT Digital Contrast) which can make Computerised Tomography (CT) scans safer, faster, more equitable and more sustainable.

The Horizon Europe award funding (total of €6M) will accelerate scientific development, clinical validation and subsequent regulatory approval of CT Digital Contrast. It will harness the comprehensive collective expertise of the 20 partners across academia, healthcare and industry.
