Sydney Imaging brings together researchers and clinicians, through the provision of exceptional infrastructure and technical expertise, to tackle frontier questions in healthcare and medical research.
One of the University of Sydney’s Core Research Facilities, Sydney Imaging is located at the University’s Brain and Mind Centre and the Charles Perkins Hub, in close proximity to the Institute of Academic Surgery, the Marie Bashir Institute, and Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. This represents an expansive research precinct dedicated to addressing major healthcare challenges - such as neurodegeneration, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, child development, mental health and ageing - and translating priority research discoveries into long-term societal and economic benefits.
With specialist branches dedicated to preclinical and clinical research, Sydney Imaging is structured to provide crucial support for our local, national and global research partners to achieve their most ambitious research objectives. Together with our flagship Hybrid Theatre, built to accommodate robotic surgery and image-guided surgical technologies, Sydney Imaging is a user focussed research facility committed to enabling fundamental and translational research outcomes.
Recognition of the contribution that core facility staff make to research is vital to the continuation of those facilities and the career progression of individuals. Facility staff are highly skilled scientists who contribute technically and intellectually to research projects. It is therefore important to acknowledge them properly in publications and presentations.
