The Queen's Square Multiple Sclerosis Centre, in collaboration with the Translational Imaging Group, recently published work in Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry on multiple sclerosis.
Dr. Christos Bergeles is giving a presentation of Light-field Imaging for Ophthalmoscopy and Medical Applications at EUretina 2016 in Copenhagen. The workshop, titled "Innovators in Computing and Technolgoy", features talks on exciting new projects on ophthalmology. With EUretina being the premier retinal ophthalmology conference in Europe, some great discussion with the clinical end users are expected!
We are excited that ZuiQui Duan will receive the 2016 IPEM Prize for most oustanding M.Sc. project. His M.Sc. was on cost-effective ophthalmoscopy for developing economies, and ZuiQui did an excellent job on software architecture and system design. ZuiQui spent 9 months in TIG working with Luis and Christos, who were his project supervisors.
