IB3 Imaging's got talent

A PhD student from the Institute of Biological Chemistry, Biophysics and Bioengineering scooped the big prize last week at Edinburgh 'Imaging's got talent'.

The event brought together PhD students and early career researchers from across the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University who are involved in imaging, and benefit from sharing their knowledge and skills, whether they are biologists, medical clinicians, veterinary surgeons, engineers, chemists, image analysts or from informatics.


Rebecca Saleeb from the Institute of Biological Chemistry, Biophysics and Bioengineering, within the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, won the overall prize for best presentation.

Claire Davies and Anuj Sehgal from Roslin being awarded prizes for 'Best Scientific Content' 'Most entertaining Presentation', respectively. The presentations took on the style of 'Britain's got talent', with Professor Rory Duncan joining his University of Edinburgh colleagues on the judging panel.

The event was sponsored by Professor Joanna Wardlaw, from Neuroimaging Sciences, who will be giving a seminar at Heriot-Watt University on Tuesday November on ''Brain imaging, integration of macro- to microscopic methods to improve understanding of brain health and common diseases'.
