This theme promotes novel approaches to imaging for biomedical and engineering applications and connects with a range of industrial sectors, including those that develop imaging technologies and instrumentation as well
as biotech companies for whom imaging is key to their developments. It also underpins chemical activity in the £7.2M EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Physical Sciences of Imaging in the Biomedical Sciences (PSIBS), run by the SoC at the UoB (2008-2018). PSIBS coordinates projects between the SoC and many disciplines at the UoB (Physics, Biosciences, Computer Science, College of Medicine and Dentistry, Chemical Engineering). The success of PSIBS and its interdisciplinary ethos has led to the recently announced £7M Physical Science for Health CDT, again hosted by the SoC, to apply a range of physical sciences to address key health challenges.
