Imaging Sciences & Biomedical Engineering (Research Division)
The Division brings together physicists, chemists, biologists, mathematicians, IT specialists and clinicians working in medical imaging and image guided therapy into 4 Departments: Cardiovascular, Cancer, Biomedical Engineering and Chemistry/Biology. We are keen to recruit PhD students from all these disciplines.
All imaging modalities are studied including MR, X-ray, CT, ultrasound, PET and SPECT as well as therapeutic nuclear medicine. Ongoing projects range from the development of new imaging agents and technology and computational image analysis and modelling, through to the clinical assessment of new imaging methods.
We have a wide range of work from studies of the basic science of imaging to research of specific clinical problems such as cardiology, neuropsychiatry, oncology, radiotherapy and surgery. Our work is carried out in close collaboration with other groups within the Medical School and associated hospitals.
