Role

Professor Ball supervises the bioinformatics team; undergraduate and postgraduate research projects. He also teaches on the modules Bioinformatics; Statistics; and Environmental Science.

Career overview

Professor Ball has a BSc (Honours) in Applied Biology (2:1).

He became a Doctor of Philosophy in July 1996 after studying at Trent Polytechnic (Nottingham Trent University). His thesis was on the Use of artificial Neural Networks to model plant and Ozone interactions. Focussing on computational modelling of the effects of climatic factors on the response of plants (physiological and biochemical) to Ozone pollution with a view to modification of the UN set critical levels for ozone pollution for difference environmental conditions. Sponsored by Department of the Environment and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe.

He has worked as a Professor of Bioinformatics at Nottingham Trent University since 2010.

Research areas

Over 25 years experience in the development and application of Bionfomatic algorithms using Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) and other machine learning techniques.  Particular application to environmental modelling, medical diagnostics and business risk analysis.  Development of knowledge management and e-learning solutions incorporating aspects of the above technologies.  Educated to PhD level and with post doctoral experience in the subject areas described above, I seek to apply this knowledge to develop simplified solutions to complex real world problems.  One of my current goals is to apply this knowledge to business solutions. Professor Ball has vast experience of supervising research students and opportunities to carry out postgraduate research towards an MPhil / PhD exist, further information may be obtained from the NTU Graduate School. Specialties Include:
Machine Learning
Precision Medicine
Deep Learning
Bioinformatics
Systems Biology
Molecular Driver Identification
Drug target Identification
Understanding molecular processes in drug re-purposing
In silico prototyping of diagnostics
Data mining of complex data sets.
Current research interests have focused on the development and application of bioinformatic algorithms using Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) to medical diagnostics and statistics including:

  • Cancer systems biology and bioinformatics
  • Identification of prognostic, diagnostic and predictive biomarkers for disease and therapy
  • Derivation and development of prognostic indices for cancer
  • Characterisation of tumours from immuno-histochemical markers in breast cancer
  • Molecular diagnostic modelling of cancer disease characteristics from mass spectrometry data of tissue and serum
  • Strain and species characterisation of bacterial pathogens from MS and sequence data
  • Modelling immune response in prostate cancer.

External activity

I am the Chief Scientific Officer and Director of Intelligent OMICS Ltd.  I also consult to A number of groups and projects around health informatics, biostatistics, environmental data analysis and artificial intelligence in image analysis.
