SINAPSE serves as the node for research imaging activity in Scotland, encompassing research across numerous disciplines using MRI, CT, PET, SPECT, EEG, MEG, ultrasound, and human optical imaging.
The breadth of expertise across imaging applications is balanced by ongoing activities within the following SINAPSE special interest groups or Themes:
The SINAPSE fMRI Theme brings together researchers whose work is in functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Lead: Position open
The SINAPSE Informatics Theme brings together researchers whose work is in storing, processing, and analysing imaging data.
Lead: Dr Manuel Blesa Cabez
Deputy Lead: Position Open
The SINAPSE Molecular Imaging Theme brings together researchers whose work includes PET imaging, SPECT imaging, radiochemistry, and radiopharmacy.
Lead: Dr Sergio Dall’Angelo
Deputy Lead: Position open
The SINAPSE Optical Imaging Theme brings together researchers whose work is in Optical Coherence Tomography and other similar optical imaging modalities.
Lead: Dr Tom MacGillivray
The SINAPSE Public Engagement Theme brings together researchers who wish to share the developments and benefits of imaging research with the general public and patients.
