Professor Neil Roberts

Position: Chair of Medical Physics and Imaging Science

Interests:

Professor Neil Roberts is the Chair of Medical Physics and Imaging Science at University of Edinburgh. After studying Medical Physics at the University of Aberdeen, Neil became a Shell-funded Research Fellow at the Magnetic Resonance and Image Analysis Research Centre (MARIARC), University of Liverpool where he established an image analysis laboratory to provide quantification for research with Shell and a wide range of clinical research. Neil became responsible for the strategic development of MARIARC following appointment to a permanent post in 1993. In January 2009, Neil took up the Chair of Medical Physics and Imaging Science through SINAPSE, Edinburgh, based at the Clinical Research and Imaging Centre (CRIC), Queens Medical Research Institute (QMRI), Little France. CRIC opens later this year and houses a Siemens 3 T Verio MR system, 128 slice spiral CT, PET/CT and cyclotron. Neil plans to widen the scope of his neuroscience interest by developing the “human-machine interface” in the wide bore Verio system with “movement Magnetic Resonance Imaging (mMRI)” - the integration and interaction of body and organ systems - and to study fetal and child development.
