In October 2022, the SDRC held our election to refresh the Executive Committee. We are now able to announce who was successfully voted.

Jennifer Macfarlane has been a co-opted member of the SDRC Executive Committee since earlier this year, we are now delighted to welcome her onto the Committee after her formal election. Find out more about Jennifer below.

I am a Clinical Scientist based at Ninewells Hospital, Dundee and Director of SINAPSE (Scottish Imaging Network: A Platform for Scientific Excellence) a research pooling group which brings together clinical and academic expertise in imaging research throughout Scotland, encouraging a multidisciplinary, collaborative and supportive approach to tackling Health and Wellbeing.
My interests include functional neuroimaging and breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). I work with both academic and clinical partners to optimise the use of MRI in patient care and research and am involved in the introduction of Scotland’s first MR guided Focused Ultrasound service to treat people with refractory Essential Tremor.

I studied and trained as a medical physicist in Glasgow. My PhD research was in the field of visual electrophysiology at the University of Glasgow. I have worked in Nuclear Medicine and MRI in both Glasgow and Dundee.

I am delighted to have been elected onto the SDRC Executive Commitee and will seek and support opportunities where imaging research in Scotland can enhance diagnosis of dementia as early as possible, gain insights into dementia development and assess the effects of treatments.
