Head of Academic Physics

The vision is to be at the forefront of medical physics development in nuclear medicine Imaging.

Our medical physics group is the largest UK Nuclear Medicine physics group in the UK. It contributes to national and international professional and scientific communities. The team includes clinical and academic physicists including postgraduates, undergraduates and clinical scientist trainees. We have expertise in radiation protection, imaging equipment design and assessment, performance evaluation, protocol development, image reconstruction and processing. The group also contributes scientific, technical and regulatory support of key importance to our own expanding research programme and to our collaborators.
