clinical sphere, where it has the chance to be transformative.
Already, the basic science that has emerged from neuroimaging has been hugely successful in medicine, helping clinicians
make more informed decisions about the treatment of their
“Having computers help us discriminate the different
populations and the response to various interventions is a
hugely powerful tool, especially with something as complicated as neurological disease or psychiatric disorders
where we have vast amount of information, including imagery, that can help clinicians make decisions, record their
responses and determine whether any modifications are
necessary,” Toga said.
Eventually, this power could be leveraged to identify disease
in certain populations earlier than is possible now, enabling
the development of FDA-approved therapeutics that could
either slow or eradicate the disease.
Satellite Laboratory at the University of Bristol
Students and faculty at the University of Bristol wanted to
get more hands-on with their space research, advancing the
research discipline to new heights within the British university.
They wanted to build their own space mission and satellite,
so they asked for the resources necessary to do so, including a
new laboratory and ground station.
The university agreed, and in November 2017, a state-of-the-art satellite laboratory opened on the Bristol campus.
One of the reasons the university so readily agreed to a new
laboratory is the sudden democratization of space research,
thanks to CubeSats, or miniature 10 x 10 cm open-access satellites that can be put into orbit by deployers on the International Space Station. As of April 2018, more than 800 CubeSats
have been launched.
Accidents happen, but it’s the response that
