Welcome to BIPL at UoL

BIPL(Biomedical Image Processing Lab) mainly works on the development of novel algorithms and application tools for automated processing of medical and biological signals/images. Major research contribution is made towards two complementary aspects: Fundamental understanding and modelling of images and signals, and Application-driven development in collaboration with professionals in medicine, biology, psychology, engineering, physics, earth observation and sociology. With digital biomedical signals/images being widely stored and shared in networks, the research group also looks to bolster the analysis of biomedical data and cyber-security of signal processing systems.

There are four main areas of research:

  1. Medical signal analysis
  2. Animal modelling
  3. Remote sensing
  4. Cyber-security
