UK Biobank Launch Imaging Study
News May 05, 2014
UK Biobank launched its imaging study on Friday 2nd May, 2014. The project will collect pictures of participants’ brains, hearts and bones to help researchers study a wide range of common, chronic and life-threatening conditions like diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
Many thousands of UK Biobank participants living close to the purpose built facility in Cheadle, Stockport will be invited to take part over the coming year. The project then intends to establish an imaging centre in other towns and cities so that as many UK Biobank participants as possible can take part if they wish.
