Compelling Insights And Beliefs

Information For Each And Every One

Jed Fernandez

Last year I have completed 3 rotation projects in different laboratories across King's College campuses, which gave me a chance to get insight into very diverse research fields, learn a range of new skills and eventually develop a strong interest in molecular imaging.
Using a range of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques including structural, diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) functional (fMRI) and resting state (rs-fMRI), the Brain and Cognition Lab investigates brain development in typical childhood, as well as when neurodevelopment goes awry such as neurodevelopment disorders (ADHD, autism etc).

Much of his focus is on brain tumour treatment response assessment using brain tumour MRI - he is reminded continuously how important neuro-oncology diagnostics are when presenting patients at the neuro-oncology multi-disciplinary team meetings in a busy London teaching hospital.
Dr So is Secretary of the British Chapter of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (BCISMRM); co-lead of ‘Emerging Imaging' in the Jed Fernandez EPSRC CDT Smart Medical Imaging; Department of Neuroimaging Admissions Tutor; and Leader of the module ‘Practical Neuroimaging' for MSc Neuroimaging.

Gary has also been a visiting critic at the Manchester School of Architecture since 2001, working with the college of Continuity In Architecture and a member of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham design review panel, which overseas new proposals as part of the planning application process within that Borough.
My project examines the relationship between genotype and phenotype in cardiac electromechanical function, led by both Professor Alistair Young (King's College London) and Professor Patricia Munroe (Queen Mary's University of London, WHRI), funded by the EPSRC DTP.
This Medical Imaging CDT program appealed to me because of its program structure in the form of core, stream and interdisciplinary modules along with group projects along with a PhD project giving me better insight into area of medical imaging. Dr Po-Wah So ( @powahso ) is Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Imaging and Spectroscopy, Head of the Phenomics Lab in the Department of Neuroimaging at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King's College London.

I chose this CDT for the opportunity to work in close proximity with students from many specialties, and I hope to develop my insight into medical imaging whilst working to create a useful and unique radiometal based imaging tracer. Tom is Professor of Interventional Image Computing within the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences at King's College London.
The multidisciplinary CDT medical imaging programme hosted by King's and Imperial provides an ideal environment where students are taught the skills and cross-disciplinary knowledge that prepares them for the pertinent PhD programme. In 2017 I started a masters in Medical Radiation Physics which brought about internships at the University of Sarajevo Clinical Center, and CERN.
