Professor Alejandro (Alex) Frangi FREng
Bicentennial Turing Chair in Computational Medicine, University of Manchester
Professor Frangi pioneered computational medicine with internationally leading contributions in fundamental and translational computational medical imaging and image-based computational medicine. He developed image analysis and modelling algorithms based on statistical shape modelling, machine learning and deep learning to deal with the analysis of large-scale complex and multimodal data where imaging plays a central role, and integrate mechanistic and phenomenological imaging-linked models.
He contributed novel statistical analysis methods to the fields of population imaging (UK Biobank) and in silico clinical trials. His highly interdisciplinary work has been translated to cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and neurological diseases areas, accounting for over 40% of the NHS expenditure.
