All proceeds from the evening will go to the Sheffield Scanner campaign.
We are working to raise £2 million to bring the future of medical imaging to Sheffield.
The Sheffield Scanner campaign aims to set up a state-of-the-art MRI-PET imaging facility here in Sheffield, the first of of its kind in Yorkshire. The high-tech scanner will provide unprecedented views of inside the human body by combining the power of both MRI and PET in a single scan.
MRI-PET allows detailed pictures of the body’s bones and tissues to be mapped onto important information about how the body is functioning. The advanced imaging technology will transform understanding of serious conditions like cancer, dementia, heart and lung diseases, Motor Neurone Disease, Parkinson's and stroke and the way they are treated in the future.
This ambitious campaign is now more than halfway towards its target. We are delighted to have raised £1.2 million over the past year. This is thanks to generous donations and widespread support from staff, current and former students, members of the local community and friends of the University.
Professor Dame Pamela Shaw, Vice-President and Head of Medicine, Dentistry and Health at the University of Sheffield, has been leading the campaign:
“I’ve been delighted by the response to the Sheffield Scanner fundraising Campaign,” she said. “I know that many people who are contributing to this appeal have been affected by diseases that this Scanner will in future, help us to treat. They may have been diagnosed themselves or have seen the impact that these illnesses can have on the lives of family or friends. I am personally touched that they have chosen to help the campaign – bringing us one step closer to helping so many other patients in future.”
However, there is still more to do. Your continued support for the Sheffield Scanner campaign will allow us to bring this ground-breaking medical imaging facility to Sheffield and help researchers tackle some of the most devastating diseases facing society today.
