Our research is centred on developing new biomedical imaging and sensing technologies to transform how minimally invasive procedures are performed. Translation of these innovations into clinical practice is a central aim. Our methodology combines a core focus on optical and ultrasonic technologies and multi-disciplinary collaboration.
We are part of the Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering at the University College London. Many of us are members of the Biomedical Optics Research Laboratory, the Photoacoustic Imaging Group, and the Guided Instrumentation for Fetal Therapy and Surgery (GIFT-Surg) project. We are closely affiliated with the Wellcome / EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences, the Centre for Medical Image Computing (CMIC) and the Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging (CABI).
We gratefully acknowledge funding from the Engineering and Physical Research Council, the European Research Council, the Wellcome Trust, and the Royal Society. We appreciate the supportive environments for our MRes and PhD students that are provided by the UCL EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Medical Imaging and the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Integrated Photonic and Electronic Systems (IPES).
