Sir Mike Brady


Professor of Oncological Imaging

Research Summary

I look into the development of image analysis methods for quantitative analysis of medical images, specifically for a range of applications in cancer.


Sir Michael Brady was appointed half-time as Professor of Oncological Imaging in the Department of Oncology, having retired from his 25-year Professorship in Information Engineering in 2010. After obtaining degrees in mathematics, he worked in computing science, artificial intelligence, and engineering.  He founded the Oxford University Robotics Group, but switched his interests to cancer image analysis in the early 1990s. 

Apart from his Oxford research, Mike has founded a number of companies, including Matakina and ScreenPoint (mammographic image analysis), Mirada Medical (medical image fusion), and Perspectum Diagnostics (liver MRI). 

He is a member of CRUK’s Science Committee and chairs the Multidisciplinary Expert Review Panel and the Royal Society Publications Board. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society.
