At the beginning of October, Insigneo welcomed 22 members of Sano team, including Research Team Leaders, PostDocs, Scientific Programmers and PhD Students to a week long PhD Training programme. This was the second time Insigneo had hosted the Sano PhD Training and the first time it was held in person. The event was held in the Medical School Seminar Rooms and the Pam Liversidge Building for the final day. The event opened with a welcome from Dr Andrew Narracott followed by an introduction to medical imaging from Dr John Fenner. The event was organised by Dr Ivan Benemerito.
Over the week the participants engaged in presentations and workshops covering topics from personalised computational modelling, medical imaging, virtual reality, sensitivity analysis, through the considerations of the commercialisation of medical devices and had the opportunity to interactive with a number of Insigneo members.
Highlights included a tour of the Medical Imaging facilities at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, including Ultrasound, X-Ray, MRI and PET-MRI, organised by Dr David Randall.
We would like to thank all the Insigneo and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals staff for their time and hospitality!
