DTP students in the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences can undertake research projects as part of the Surgical and Interventional Engineering programme, that have been developed around 4 central themes: smart sensors and actuators, computer-assisted interventions, computational modelling and materials and theranostics. The School also offers DTP projects in areas such as Image Acquisition and Image Reconstruction, Imaging Biology and Imaging Chemistry, Medical Image Computing, Imaging Robotics, Machine/Deep Learning.
A key strength of our DTP consists in its world-leading teaching facilities embedded within St Thomas' Hospital in the heart of central London. Students will also enjoy access to wider School infrastructure such as the new London Medical Imaging & Artificial Intelligence Centre for Value-Based Healthcare and London’s first high-field 7 Tesla MR Centre. Further, the students have access to the state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and mock-operating theatre of the Department of Surgical and Interventional Engineering.
Details of upcoming project calls are circulated via email to all academics in the School.
