About us

What we do

We are driven by our commitment to improve the way we deliver healthcare  through the use of  advanced engineering. ​

A diverse and talented group working across the whole MedTech sector, we advance  research, innovation and teaching progress through our shared mission of engineering better  health for patients worldwide. ​

Our state-of-the-art labs and clinical-research facilities are embedded in St Thomas’ Hospital  where we can ensure our research projects are fully aligned with current clinical practice. Long-term collaborations with global MedTech companies and new partnerships with innovative start-ups ensure  multiple pathways to translation.

Research is organised into ambitious, large-scale and long-term research projects supported by our set of six departments. This diverse infrastructure allows us  to  combine expertise and apply the latest healthcare concepts to deliver ground breaking results.   ​

We pass this integrated approach to the next generation of healthcare specialists who study with our lecturers. Courses with practical training and real-world application at their core, taking place at the UK’s most research active NHS trust.
