Natural Sciences: Unlocking The Brain – Applications of Medical Imaging With Dr Chris Brignell, Society For Natural Sciences

November 23 @ 13:00 – 13:45

There are many unsolved scientific problems, such as how to cure cancer or how to stop climate change. Finding the answers will require scientists of all disciplines (biologists, chemists, physicists, psychologists, mathematicians,…) working together.

In this talk we will examine what each branch of science can contribute.  We’ll look at how advances in medical imaging are dependent on interdisciplinary science, and how we have used them to improve human health and scientific understanding.  Finally, we’ll discuss opportunities to study multiple science subjects at university.

Dr Chris Brignell is Associate Director of Natural Sciences and Associate Professor of Statistics in the School of Mathematical Sciences, Faculty of Science, at University of Nottingham. In this session, Chris represents the Society for Natural Sciences, a national learned society that promotes interdisciplinary science education and research.A-level, BTEC, T-level and IB links to: Physics (magnetic fields), Chemistry (atomic structure) and Biology (respiration). Follow-up resources linking this webinar to A-level, BTEC, T-level and IB curricula will be made available after this session via the Society for Natural Sciences website.
