What's new

Visualising COVID-19 outbreak

Paediatric Neuroimaging researcher provides real-time case information on epidemiological data from the COVID-19 outbreak.

Sharing the benefits

At the beginning of the year our family leave policies were updated. Employees can now take up most of our family leave schemes from the first day of employment, meaning that more parents can now enjoy the benefits of our generous provisions. Hayriye Cagnan from the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, and husband Eugene Duff from the Department of Paediatrics, discuss their experience of shared parental leave following baby Ida’s arrival ten months ago.

New design of ‘bike helmet’ style brain scanner used with children for first time

A new wearable ‘bike helmet’ style brain scanner, that allows natural movement during scanning, has been used in a study with young children for the first time. This marks an important step towards improving our understanding of brain development in childhood.

Public Engagement with Research

Public engagement and outreach are an important priority for the Paediatric Neuroimaging Group. We regularly attend science festivals, visit schools, and take part in science communication events.
