MRC Integrated Midlands Partnership for Biomedical Training (IMPACT)
The UK has been a world leader in medical imaging since the 1960s, including the groundbreaking development of MRI led by Sir Peter Mansfield in Nottingham, enabling major advances in our knowledge about in vivo functional anatomy of whole organs and their substructures, especially the brain and as a non-invasive diagnostic tool.
Advanced imaging modalities have been crucial aids to our fundamental scientific understanding of cellular and molecular processes underlying biological function and disease. Research projects and training in this theme will demonstrate that advances in knowledge are not just a matter of having access to state-of-the-art technologies, but require an interdisciplinary combination of technological expertise and biological/medical knowledge to formulate answerable questions and to interpret the results.
