Biomedical Imaging in Research - online (Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences)
Duration 3 hours (2 hours self study, 1 hour webinar)
Training Points 1.0
Team Researcher Academy

This online course is run by the Researcher Academy 

The Researcher Academy courses are very popular and the majority are run in both semesters to give you the opportunity to attend at a time of the year that suits you. Semester 1 courses will be available for booking from the second week of October and Semester 2 courses from the second week of February. 

Target audience:  Postgraduate doctoral students and Research-only staff (ECRs) in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences only 

This is a two part online course, comprising asynchronous (self-study) and synchronous (live webchat) delivery and should take 3 hours to complete in total.

The self-study (2 hours in duration) must be completed in advance of the webchat (1 hour duration). Both parts must be completed to receive an attendance mark for training points. Enrolment on Moodle will close 2 hours before the webchat (i.e last time point to complete the self-study).

The scheduled time below is for the 1 hour webchat. The self study may be completed at any time in advance of this.   

Aims: To provide an integrated overview of imaging techniques employed in modern biomedical research, from molecular scale to whole-body imaging. 

By the end of the session you will have: 

  •  considered basic imaging principles 
  • reviewed strengths and weaknesses of different biomedical imaging techniques 
  • appreciated recent developments in the field 
  • identified some of Nottingham’s current research activities in this field 

Course description: 
This half-day course is aimed at researchers who want to develop an understanding of biomedical imaging techniques and their application to research.  

Biomedical imaging is one of the major strengths and key Research Priorities of our University. Examples of current imaging research encompassing mechanistic understanding of pathophysiological processes, pre-clinical and clinical activities, translational research and the quest for novel biomarkers will be given. There are no prerequisites for this course. 

Booking Conditions 

Our webinars/ online courses are very popular, especially in the current period and we are experiencing large volumes of people on our waiting lists.  

Please do let us know if you would like to cancel your place on this course so we can offer your place to another delegate.
