We are currently experiencing many new exciting developments in imaging technology in biology and medicine. New advances in tomographic imaging, such as photoacoustic tomography, electron tomography, multicontrast magnetic resonance tomography (MRT) and combined MR with positron emission tomography (PET), as well as new technology in microscopy such as lightsheet microscopy, only mark the beginning of an era which revolutionises the extent of what we can see. New imaging technology always goes side by side with the need of mathematical models to maximise the information gain from these novel imaging techniques. For instance, previously tomographic imaging and light microscopy were separate imaging modalities, which were difficult to cross correlate. However, rapid development of new imaging hardware (light sheet, polarized PET, MRI), is now opening up new avenues for translational multimodal imaging. These developments are supported by sophisticated and rigorous mathematical models, which enhance the information in one imaging modality with information from another.
Please note, this workshop is nearly fully subscribed. To be offered a place, please contact Clare Merritt at the TGM.
Aims and Objectives
New imaging technologies however, also bring new challenges to be overcome. In electron tomography for example, the limited angle problem is an intrinsic hardware limitation which results in viewpoint angles in which the imaged specimen cannot be resolved. Dynamic imaging techniques produce huge amounts of image data which require reliable and efficient methods for interpretation and analysis.
This one day meeting therefore aims to bring together those working on advances in imaging technology with researchers who investigate new image analysis methods, to help address these challenges. In particular, there will be a focus on the following topics:
The workshop will facilitate the communication of both current opportunities and challenges of new imaging techniques. It will also allow for the sharing of knowledge on current approaches and solutions of mathematical modelling and analysis approaches, with presentations on industry insights and state-of-the-art mathematical techniques for Big Data Analytics.
This event will be of interest to participants from the biomedical imaging industry, mathematics, engineering, computer science and physics, as well as biology and medicine.
More information is available from the Turing Gateway to Mathematics, who are hosting this event.

INI is a creative collaborative space which is occupied by up to fifty-five mathematical scientists at any one time (and many more when there is a workshop). Some of them may not have met before and others may not realise the relevance of other research to their own work.
INI is especially important as a forum where early-career researchers meet senior colleagues and form networks that last a lifetime.
Here you can learn about all activities past, present and future, watch live seminars and submit your own proposals for research programmes.
Within this section of the website you should find all the information required to arrange and plan your visit to the Institute. If you have any further questions, or are unable to find the information you require, please get in touch with the relevant staff member or our Reception team via our contact pages.
INI and its programme participants produce a range of publications to communicate information about activities and events, publish research outcomes, and document case studies which are written for a non-technical audience. You will find access to them all in this section.
The Isaac Newton Institute aims to maximise the benefit of its scientific programmes to the UK mathematical science community in a variety of ways.
Whether spreading research opportunities through its network of correspondents, offering summer schools to early career researchers, or hosting public-facing lectures through events such as the Cambridge Festival, there is always a great deal of activity to catch up on.
Find out about all of these endeavours in this section of the site.
There are various ways to keep up-to-date with current events and happenings at the Isaac Newton Institute. As detailed via the menu links within this section, our output covers social media streams, news articles, a regular podcast series, an online newsletter, and more detailed documents produced throughout the year.
“A world famous place for research in the mathematical sciences with a reputation for efficient management and a warm welcome for visitors”
The Isaac Newton Institute is a national and international visitor research institute. It runs research programmes on selected themes in mathematics and the mathematical sciences with applications over a wide range of science and technology. It attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and overseas to interact in research over an extended period.
INI has a vital national role, building on many strengths that already exist in UK universities, aiming to generate a new vitality through stimulating and nurturing research throughout the country.During each scientific programme new collaborations are made and ideas and expertise are exchanged and catalysed through lectures, seminars and informal interaction, which the INI building has been designed specifically to encourage.
For INI’s knowledge exchange arm, please see the Newton Gateway to Mathematics.
The Institute depends upon donations, as well as research grants, to support the world class research undertaken by participants in its programmes.
Fundraising activities are supported by a Development Board comprising leading figures in academia, industry and commerce.
Visit this section to learn more about how you could play a part in supporting INI’s groundbreaking research.
In this section you can find contact information, staff lists, maps and details of how to find INI’s main building in Cambridge.
Our administrative staff can help you with any queries regarding a prospective or planned visit. If you would like to discuss a proposed a research programme or other event, our senior management team will be happy to help.
