YNiC Responsibilities

Over the years I have been working at the centre, I have been closely involved in all element of the development and implementation of materials and technologies to facilitate scientific research at YNiC - i.e. supporting the needs of our users. I try to perform these duties by contributing to studies where appropriate and also by carrying out independent research projects.

More recently I have been appointed the role of Operations Manager and am now formally running the centre. This includes the role of CQC Registered Manager for our clinical diagnostic imaging service -- York Diagnostic Imaging.
