Andrew's Inaugural lecture will be on 26 June 2017 : Imaging - much more than a pretty picture
Images surround us. They permeate our physical and virtual spaces. They also populate somewhat less conspicuous, but important territories.
Images underpin a large variety of research - from clinical trials, to laboratory cellular methods, from equipment design and development, to innovations in image visualization, processing and analysis.
Imaging is consequently highly interdisciplinary, requiring the expertise of radiologists, physicists, engineers, computer scientists, and technologists, interfacing with other systems-based medical, clinical and science specialists. Integrating these different disciplines, to maximize research outputs and avoid “siloesque” working, is not always straightforward.
Professor Andrew Farrall will explore the challenges and benefits of educating and training a diverse and interdisciplinary population of researchers who are using imaging to push forward the frontiers of their disciplines.
