Around 20 academics and clinicians from across Scotland came together in Edinburgh on 17 March for our first ‘Frontiers Meeting’. These are aimed at identifying research opportunities arising from the new Scottish Farr infrastructure and to help us enable several new datasets for research purposes.
This first gathering at our offices at the BioQuarter was co-hosted with the Nationwide Imaging Research Network, SINAPSE. It focused on medical imaging data and explored opportunities for ground-breaking research in clinical specialties. By looking at both academic programmes and industrial partnerships, the group identified a potential source of funding and will now work together on a collaborative grant submission.
