This Quantitative Bioimaging programme from University of Birmingham combines the most exciting developments in advanced microscopy and quantitative image analysis for the study of key biomedical questions. 


Upon completion, students will be an ideal position to pursue a successful career in academia, as well as in the microscopy or pharmaceutical industry.

A deep understanding of the molecular mechanism at the basis of physiology and disease is key to develop novel treatments for diseases such as cancer, diabetes or Alzheimer's. The recent development of innovative microscopy and computational methods like super-resolution microscopy and artificial intelligence has opened up unprecedented opportunities to study fundamental biological processes directly in living cells and organisms in ways that were unimaginable only a few years ago.

This Quantitative Bioimaging programme from University of Birmingham aims at training the next generation of biomedical and biophysical scientists with a highly interdisciplinary profile, capable of combining the most recent developments in advanced microscopy, image analysis and computational approaches to extract highly quantitative information from dynamic biological systems.


The programme will enable students to develop a wide range of skills suited to careers not only in academic research, but also in the pharmaceutical, imaging and optics and data science fields.
