biography

Andy Simmons is a Reader in Neuroimaging at the Department of Neuroimaging, Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London and the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre for Mental Health and a Consultant Clinical Scientist (Medical Physics) at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.

His first degree was in Physics at Imperial College London and was followed by a MSc in Medical Physics and Information Technology at Aberdeen University specialising in medical imaging and image processing. He subsequently studied for a PhD in MRI and MR image analysis at University College London and the Institute of Neurology, Queen Square with Paul Tofts and Simon Arridge.

Following the completion of his PhD he spent a short while as a postdoctoral researcher at University College London working on a project for a robot to pick oranges. This was followed by a NHS funded clinical physicist research position at Kent and Canterbury Hospital where he also undertook NHS training as a Clinical Scientist in both Nuclear Medicine and Bone Densitometry to build on his experience in MRI, IT and image analysis. His research focused on Dual Energy X-Ray Absortiometry measurements, in particular the effect of normal range use on patient classification and the impact of scanner upgrades.

He joined the Institute of Psychiatry and Maudsley Hospital in 1994 as a Lecturer in Neuroimaging alongside Steve Williams to set up the Neuroimaging Research Group. He currently holds the post of Reader in Neuroimaging working on both methodology development and the application of MR to clinical cohorts and normal controls.

He holds honorary positions in the Neuroimaging Department at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, in the Medical Physics Department at King’s College London, the Institute of Neurology at University College London, the University of Kent and King’s College Hospital NHS Trust.

activities and interests

NIHR Biomedical Research Centre for Mental Health at the Institute of Psychiatry and South London and Maudsley NHS Trust

The National Institute for Health Research funded Biomedical Research Centre for Mental Health comprises seven disorder themes (addictions, anti-social behaviour, child psychiatry, clinical neurosciences, common mental disorders, dementia, psychosis) and three cross cutting themes (analytic techniques, biomedical technologies, user involvement). I am the imaging coordinator for the Biomedical Technologies theme which covers imaging and omics, in particular genomics and proteomics.

The Biomedical Technologies theme works closely with colleagues from the disorder themes on imaging and omics studies and to create a large scale imaging-omics database. A programme of imaging studies has been established with the disorder themes and projects is underway in first episode psychosis, Alzheimer’s disease, alcohol dependence, social phobia, attention defecit hyperactivity disorder, chronic fatigue, epilepsy, motor neuron disease (ALS) and depression. In order to combine data from different subject groups a major focus has been on the development of standardised protocols for structural MRI, functional MRI, DTI, perfusion and quantitative T1 and T2 mapping together with colleagues from the Centre for Neuroimaging Sciences. To ensure consistency across these protocols there is also a major emphasis on advanced quality control measures. There is a strong focus on the development and application of automated pipelines for the analysis of high resolution structural imaging data, working with projects containing up to four thousand T1-weighted volumes. Building on research carried out as part of the AddNeuroMed study we have built a large scale imaging database which will encapsulate all of the BRC imaging data.

AddNeuroMed Alzheimer’s Disease Biomarker Study

AddNeuroMed is a large multi-centre European funded study of biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease. The clinical component of the grant is led by Professor Simon Lovestone from the Institute of Psychiatry. I work on the image acquisition and analysis of a large multi-centre faux clinical trial that is part of the study with Christian Spenger, Sebastian Muehboeck, Eric Westman and colleagues from six clinical imaging sites across Europe. Over 360 subjects were enrolled into the imaging part of the trial and have been followed up with serial MRI at baseline, three months and one year. Over four thousand sets of images have been acquired, automated structural analysis pipelines applied to the data and analyses linking imaging with clinical and omic data completed or underway.

Research Interests

My research interests lie in the development and application of neuroimaging acquisition and analysis techniques to patient groups and normals including functional MRI, pharmacological MRI, structural and volumetric MRI, diffusion tensor MRI, diffusion tensor tractography, proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and quantitative T1 and T2 mapping. I work with a broad range of MRI and MRS acquisition and analysis techniques. Particular current focuses in image acquisition include GABA and glutamate MRS, axon calibre and high resolution hippocampal imaging. On the analysis side I am currently working on automated image analysis pipelines, large scale image analysis of hundreds or thousands of subjects, imaging-omics analysis, cortical thickness and network analysis. I also have a strong interest in e-Learning.

Research Team

Our research team includes staff and student members with image acquisition, image analysis, neuroscience and psychology backgrounds. Currently the team includes Matthew Kempton, Bill Crum, Nagulan Ratnarajan, Cedric Ginestet, Simon Brunton, Flavio Dell’Acqua, Vanessa da Rocha Rego, Didi Akinluyi, Kie Woo Nam, Eric Westman (from March 2011), Jo Gray and Cerisse Gunasinghe. Recent previous members include Andy Aitken, Dan Cromb, Daisy Shinhmar, Kristina Hakansson, Mahsa Shokouhi and Rysia Burmicz. We collaborate with a large number of colleagues from within the Centre for Neuroimaging Sciences, across the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London and SLAM as well as across the UK, Europe, Canada and the USA.

e-Learning

I have a strong interest in research involving e-Learning and am a member of the pan-European EMITEL and EMIT consortiums led by Kings College London which have worked on e-training materials, an e-dictionary in 25 languages and an e-encyclopedia. I am the MRI coordinator for the project which has written over 3200 articles spanning a wide range of medical physics applications. The EMITEL e-encyclopedia was formally launched at the World Congress of Medical Physics in Munich in September 2009 and covers more than 450 MRI entries. The e-dictionary will, for example, allow translations of key terms between languages as diverse as English, Thai, Latvian and Bengali. The EMIT project won the first Leonardo da Vinci award for excellence in vocational education and training.

Clinical

I am a Consultant Clinical Scientist (Medical Physics) at the South London and Maudsley (SLAM) NHS Foundation Trust. The major focus of my clinical work is on advanced neuroimaging techniques for clinical work and the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre for Mental Health based at the IoP and SLAM. This has included establishing clinical MRS protocols, volumetric protocols for hippocampal volumetry and diffusion imaging protocols. Recently I have worked to establish new dementia and first episode schizophrenia imaging services, aligned clinical protocols to ensure compatibility with the research work of the Biomedical Research Centre and established the first high field 3T clinical protocols locally.
