The recent award by Innovate UK for the PathLAKE programme is a further success of the PMC. As part of the PathLAKE programme, the PMC will contribute to the development of a national centre of excellence for digital pathology (DP) and artificial intelligence (AI). The PMC will lead on Exemplar projects that aim to develop, evaluate and validate algorithms for increased efficiency in pathological reporting, improved molecular diagnostics and to aid in the identification of patients that would benefit from personalised medicine. Identification of appropriate cases and samples will be key to the success of the project and will be undertaken with support from the Northern Ireland Biobank (NIB). Furthermore, the PMC will contribute to the development of a comprehensive training and education package focused on pathology and AI and aimed a range of participants including, pathologists, computer scientists, other academics and SMEs.
