EdiImaging Expo 2017 cell

Congratulations to ESRIC researchers, Frederic Li Mow Chee and Allende Miguelez Crespo, who impressed at the annual Edinburgh Imaging PhD expo last week.

Allende took the finale spot among presenters to tell us about her use of breakthrough SPAD array cameras to capture super-fast cell events. While, Frederic came away with the Abberior ‘best fluorescence microscopy project’ prize for his impressive research implementing SIM to help decipher novel functions for cell adhesion proteins during cancer progression (pictured data).

The expo, which takes place every October, brings together researchers from across the city to share ideas and build new collaborations. This year’s event showcased research spanning clinical imaging, fluorescence microscopy and image analysis, highlighting the diversity of imaging talent across Edinburgh. 

 

The impressive standard of presentation left the judges (Toshiba Medical’s Dr Keith Goatman, The University of Edinburgh’s Prof Adam Waldman, ESRIC’s Dr Rebecca Saleeb and GSK’s Dr Alex Morgan) with an unenviable task to pick favourites.

Other winners included Dr Mark Rodrigues for best clinical talk, James Sloan for best preclinical talk, Alisia Sim for best poster and Lucy Kershaw for best question from the audience.

 

Edinburgh Imaging is the collective hub of clinicians, scientists and veterinary surgeons, who all have an interest in medical imaging in Edinburgh. It aims to break down barriers within science, engineering and clinical environments - to allow researchers to work collaboratively with the joint purpose to advance health through excellence in imaging science.
