Here are the current studies being undertaken by the Bio team, and our partner organisations.
The Urological cancers in collaboration with Milton Keynes University Hospital. Large scale clinical trial working with the nurses and clinicians at MKUH. The Bio detection dogs are being trained to detect urological cancers.
A pilot study in the detection of prostate cancer with Prostate Cancer Foundation US, Massachusetts Institute of Technology & Johns Hopkins University. Our part in this early pilot study is to demonstrate the dog’s ability to detect prostate cancer.
Parkinson’s Disease. Working with partners at Edinburgh University and Manchester University. We are due to start the second stage of double testing in the first quarter of 2019.
Canine Sensory Interface with The Open University. This is an ongoing Artificial Intelligence (AI) project where we’re looking to develop and electronic system that can read the dog’s reaction when it interacts with a sample.
