Overview of Oxford Imaging
The University of Oxford has a strong portfolio of biomedical imaging sciences spanning cells to man, and spanning both the Medical Sciences Division (MSD) and the Maths, Physical and Life Sciences Division (MPLS) of the University. The principal disease themes fall under the broad categories of cardiovascular, neurosciences and oncology, with activity at all levels of biological scale and in both divisions that fall under these categories. There is also extensive activity in pathological imaging, immunological imaging, and pharmacological imaging, and a growing interest in musculoskeletal imaging and lung imaging.
Imaging is also been identified as a major strategic area for growth within the University. In 2007 the University established a joint MSD/MPLS Biomedical Imaging Network, of which this web site is a part. This network links together the various departmental-based imaging programmes and attempts to promote a coordinated biomedical imaging strategy and collaborative environment. It also enables better advantage to be taken of integrating the clinical translational imaging afforded by the NIHR Oxford Comprehensive Biomedical Research Centre (O2BRC), and provides links to the O2BRC Imaging Theme.
