June Biobank Webinar: Imaging

17th June 2020

Following the success of the Digital Health Domain Initial Biobank webinar in making people aware of how data is being used and what skills are available across the university, this second webinar was held to outline:

- which imaging data are available in the UK Biobank

- the specific characteristics/potential of these imaging data, as well as any limitations

- the imaging research with Biobank data that is currently happening in Manchester, and by whom

- what is required (and available at UoM) in terms of storage, compute and analytic tools for anyone who would like to analyse the Biobank imaging data

The webinar was hosted by prof Niels Peek, Digital Futures Health and Care Theme Lead, with presentations from Dr Claudia Lindner, Rutherford Fund Fellow at HDR UK, Division of Informatics, Imaging & Data Sciences; Elizabeth McManus, PhD student, Division of Neuroscience and Experimental Psychology; and Dr Paul Bromiley, Lecturer in Health Data Sciences, Division of Informatics, Imaging & Data Sciences.
