Imaging and Sensing in Medicine and the Life Sciences Workshop

22 February 2012, 09:00 - 14:00

Whether imaging individual molecules within cells or imaging whole body systems, rapid
developments are being made in imaging and sensing biological processes.

This workshop is proposed as the start of a new initiative to span all of the current pooling initiatives within Scotland. Taking the format of short, high-impact talks, this workshop aims to identify critical problems in the area of "Imaging and Sensing in Medicine and the Life Sciences" which could be addressed by collaborations between partners in SU2P, SINAPSE, NRP / SRPe, SUPA, SULSA, SICSA and Industry.

Coffee and lunch breaks will be scheduled with ample time to allow networking and follow-up of topics introduced in the presentation sessions.

Two forms of contribution are invited:

  • Academic staff and industrial researchers are invited to deliver 5-minute presentations, with an additional 1-minutes provided for questions. Presentations should highlight a promising scientific or technical capability, or alternatively should define an important unsolved problem in the theme area.
  • Students and post-doctoral researchers, or those that prefer to do so, are invited to submit posters for display during the coffee and lunch breaks.

Places are strictly limited and early registration is essential. Registration including coffee breaks and a buffet lunch is free for SU2P, SINAPSE, NRP / SRPe, SUPA, SULSA, SICSA and partner organisations as well as industry.
