you for the opportunity to partner in your proposal for a CDT in this area of
Imaging and sensing. This field is one of significant strength in the UK, which
we need to retain with appropriate skills, but we also need to be open to new
imaging modalities and your proposal for Optical Medical Imaging is very
timely. Our KTN is addressing Priority Areas across medical technologies,
diagnostics in its broadest sense and stratified medicine in which optical
imaging and sensing will play an important role."
Co-Director HealthTech and Medicines KTN
"HGF works with clients across a range of medical
technologies, and optical medical imaging is a growing area interest. The
technology area thus matches with areas of our business. We strongly encourage
the focus upon business skills and translation that the CDT intends to
incorporate into its studies; it is in this area that there would be an
opportunity to work with you and the students."
"BBI recognize that imaging diagnostics promise to be the most powerful and rapidly growing sector within the in vitro diagnostics sector and we are keen to develop strategic relationships with leading academics within this space. We are always in need of scientists trained in the commercial and clinical context of our products and indeed this unique ‘skills’ offering is rarely available."
Dr Pete Corish
Head of Business Development
"Touch Bionics enthusiastically supports OPTIMA. As a partner, we would be pleased to host placement students as they would have an unrivalled experience in the commercialisation of leading edge medical technologies. While for us, this partnership means access to top quality scientists and developing entrepreneurs.”
"We view initiatives such as this, which boost the UK pool of highly knowledgeable and qualified engineers, as a strategic benefit to our industry. In addition the unique business and clinical awareness that these graduates will have will bring e a major boost to the local 'skills pool'."
Director - Imaging Division
“The aims of the Centre for Doctoral Training are of direct interest to Almac. In addition to training the next generation of molecular and physical sciences, in the context of clinically relevant projects, the training in business skills and entrepreneurship is particularly important. Developing PhD scientists with business acumen and an understanding of the commercial scientific environment is highly desirable and we support this initiative 100%.”
Dr Stephen Barr
President and MD for Almac Sciences
"the combination of excellence in physical sciences married with entrepreneurial training and clinical awareness make this a unique and fertile training opportunity".
Dr Malcolm Skingle
Director - Academic Liaison
PA Consulting Group
"Optics and imaging are valuable capabilities which PA Consulting Group offers to its clients. They are also areas where it can be challenging to recruit graduates and early-career scientists with the appropriate depth of knowledge and skills, coupled with the right approach to working on fast-paced commercial projects and the ability to communicate effectively with senior clients. We are pleased that the CDT training programme has been designed to address these issues and believe it can make an important contribution to the development of these valuable skills."
