About Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS
CISIR started as a research lab in 2000 in the area of image and signal processing. It became a UTP leading research cluster in 2005. On 15 Dec 2008, CISIR was established as a university research centre. CISIR re-aligned its research focus to UTP Mission Oriented Research in Biomedical Technology in 2009. On 2 August 2012, CISIR became UTP’s first Centre of Excellence (CoE) after successfully meeting UTP CoE criteria.
CISIR has been recognised by the Ministry of Education (MOE) as the National Higher Institution Centre of Excellence (HICoE) status focusing on Neuro-Chemical Imaging Under Biomedical Image Analysis as its research niche area.
Current research activities include medical imaging analysis of stroke prediction, diabetic retinopathy, ageing, psoriasis, ulcer wounds, skin pigmentation (vitiligo, melasma), visual evoked potentials (VEP) for clinical research and video surveillance for security. The research centre also serves the university Mission-Oriented Research in Health.
