Chemistry for Healthcare Technologies 

This theme brings together synthetic and biological chemists interested in molecular probe design, as well as physical and computational chemists who are developing instrumental approaches to diagnostics and imaging.

This area of research facilitates interactions between the School of Chemistry (SoC) and many other disciplines at Birmingham, including physics, biosciences, computer science, chemical engineering and medicine. 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).

The success of PSIBS, and its interdisciplinary ethos, has led to the £7M Physical Science for Health CDT, again hosted by the SoC, to apply a range of physical sciences to address key health challenges.
