The EPSRC-MRC ONBI CDT is a collaborative venture between the Universities of Oxford and Nottingham, which began in October 2014. Our first cohort will not graduate before October 2018, and we are looking forward with great interest to see what their next career steps will be.
The programme is designed to provide a uniquely broad training in imaging science, addressing a demonstrated need to expand the capacity of experts in biomedical imaging in the UK and elsewhere. The programme was designed with input from academia and industry, and provides our students with a breadth of understanding from molecules in cells to patients in MRI scanners, which they can use to ground their research in a specific field. We therefore expect our students to go on to work both in industry and academia.
