Recent research within the Medical Engineering group has produced a novel MRI scanner which offers unique new capabilities for musculoskeletal imaging, particularly ligaments, tendons and cartilage, which are difficult to assess using conventional techniques. This new method has the exciting potential to become a game changer in diagnosing injuries or disease in joints, with important implications for subsequent treatment, for example of sports injuries.
Having demonstrated the viability of the approach, we now have funding from the Wellcome Trust which aims to maximise the image quality from the new system and to enable early clinical studies, which will be conducted in collaboration with medical partners.
We are looking to hire a Research Associate to work on this new project, where we will be involving design and development of novel RF receivers, the associated electronic circuitry, and various related aspects of MRI system integration. There is a strong opportunity to be part of a team producing new IP with prospects for future commercialisation.
