Dr Heather E. L. Rose
The University of Birmingham
Dr Heather Rose obtain her Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry in 2007 and a PhD in Physical Chemistry in 2013 from The University of Birmingham. Doctoral research focused on the investigation of fluid dynamics and chemical interactions using NMR and MRI. After a period working in further education and carrying out postdoctoral research in the field of food science Heather transitioned into paediatric medical research.
From 2015 she has been employed in the Birmingham Children’s Brain Tumour Research Team focusing on the application of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in clinical research. She works on several collaborative projects investigating the role of multimodal MRI combined with machine learning to aid diagnosis and monitoring of rare paediatric conditions. A key focus of her role is the translation of these techniques into the clinical environment through the development of clinical decision support systems.
MR imaging and Spectroscopy of Paediatric Brain Disease
The ability of MR to probe the structural and chemical profile of a tissue makes it a valuable tool in the diagnosis of a variety of paediatric conditions. Due to the rarity of many conditions in clinical paediatrics we approach MR studies from a multi-centre approach, evaluating the usefulness of MR biomarkers outside of a single centre environment and develop new software platforms to make such tool available in a clinical environment.
