Quality and validation of machine learning methods

Not all machine learning methods are created equal and not all training datasets are of the same standard of quality.In this project we'll look at how machine learning methods can be quality assured and validated with a particular focus on training datasets.

Anatomical variations in the accommodation system

It is well known that the growth of the eye after birth is directed by visual stimuli, that a blur signal is detected by the retina, and this initiates a signalling cascade within the eye to control eye growth. Both the retina, as the blur detection site, and the accommodation response, that acts to maintain good vision at all distances, are key components of this system. The anatomical and physiological variations to the ciliary muscle and how this relates to …

Biological and clinical impact of the association of germline variations in KLK3 (PSA) gene in prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is the most frequently occurring cancer (after skin cancers) in Australian males, and the second most common cause of cancer death. While the 5-year survival rate for localised disease approaches 100%, extra-prostatic invasion results in a poorer prognosis. Kallikreins are serine proteases, which are part of an enzymatic cascade pathway activated in prostate cancer (Lawrence et al 2010). The most well-known member is prostate specific antigen (PSA) or the KLK3 protein, encoded by the Kallikrein 3 (KLK3) gene, …
