SINAPSE is developing strategic collaborations with a wide range of partners both national and international including pharmaceutical, imaging equipment and software companies. The companies we already work with include: Pfizer, GSK, Astra Zeneca, Toshiba Medical Visualisation Systems.


SINAPSE was awarded £1.12M from the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) to lead on developments in Novel and Collaborative Approaches to Knowledge Exchange in Translational Imaging. The project funds knowledge exchange with industry in the form of industrial PhD studentships, training seminars for industry and academia and staff exchanges.

SPIRIT and Training

SINAPSE was awarded £300k from the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) to develop training both online and face to face. The development is called SPRING. The development programme enhances existing CPD modules on Neuroimaging.


We have a wide range of radiological expertise across our network. We also have a well-established reputation for providing expert image interpretation for large multi-centre studies. We have access to key clinical data sets that may be used to validate research hypothesis or for testing image analysis software.

Industrial Placements

One of the SINAPSE network's key aims is to develop the next generation of imaging researchers. Industrial placements are crucial in ensuring that research outcomes are translated into the industrial community as well as the healthcare environment. We would like to hear from companies that could offer these opportunities to both students and research staff.
