Imaging has become an essential part of scientific research, from biomedical sciences to engineering to optoelectronics.
Most fundamental developments have come to fruition because of imaging. Our scientists are developing and using ground-breaking imaging techniques to solve some of society’s biggest challenges in areas such as age-related conditions including dementia, musculoskeletal and cancer, infectious diseases, respiratory medicine, environmental health and climate change.
New technology advancements lead to new insights and the most exciting advances are at the interface of disciplines. Biophotonics and Imaging truly builds on these pillars of interdisciplinary research philosophy and hopes to enable new discoveries and novel applications across life sciences including health and environment.
New imaging techniques are constantly arising from technological and computational advances. The combination of biosciences and imaging expertise at Southampton is very exciting in terms of the new science it opens up.
New technology and interdisciplinary research including Imaging, Electrophysiology, Medicine, and Computer Sciences allows detailed examination of the relationships between structural and functional brain connectivity in health and disease across the life course. Detailed characterisation of how the human brain responds to injury and disease, and how this relates to behaviour, will ultimately allow development of personalised early intervention and treatments.
