Promoting news and opportunities in medical image analysis
Linking UK-based academics, clinicians, and industry
Providing a platform to share research and find collaborators
The UK’s national medical image analysis community
Supporting new medical imaging research and tech collaborations between academics, clinicians, and industry.
Funded by the EPSRC to run workshops, networking events, and seed-funding initiatives, and provide an online resource for the community to advance the field of medical image analysis.
We aim build trust between sectors and increase cross-sector collaborations. To do this, we provide opportunities for people to meet face-to-face and online where they can share knowledge, build relationships, and take the first steps to forming new collaborations.
Providing a programme of events and an online platform
Over June and July 2017, we surveyed 33 early-career researchers and 45 senior researchers in the UK on their needs and challenges when engaging in clinical and industrial collaborations, and what they would want the network to provide.
