Overview

SINAPSE is a consortium of seven Scottish universities; Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, St Andrews, Stirling, and Strathclyde. It has been established with funding from the Scottish Funding Council (SFC), the Chief Scientist Office (CSO), and the partner Universities.

Our areas of expertise include

  • MRI and advanced techniques
  • PET and SPECT; especially radiochemistry
  • EEG and fMRI (cognitive neuroimaging)
  • Imaging trials
  • Partnership working

The first phase of funding for SINAPSE (2007-2014) included a Graduate School between the Universities with support for 24 PhD studentships, a number eventually increased to 45 through subsequent successful funding bids, particularly the SPIRIT programme. Also supported were the appointment of SINAPSE Chairs in imaging related disciplines and post-doctoral research fellows. Network administration was led from the University of Edinburgh. A searchable database of publications from the first phase of SINAPSE can be viewed here. A final report for the first phase of SINAPSE can be viewed here.

The current phase of funding for SINAPSE (2015-2019) carries forward the focus on research, knowledge exchange, and education in medical imaging. Whereas activities in the first phase of SINAPSE were largely restricted to the original six partner Universities because of the structure of the network at the time, SINAPSE membership is now open to all imaging researchers around Scotland. Network administration is led from the University of Glasgow.
