UCL today announced that it has been named a GPU Research Centre by NVIDIA following a successful campus-wide application.

UCL was recognised for its advanced research in a wide variety of areas, including bio-molecular modeling for cancer researchvascular imaging and magnetic resonance physics, computational systems biologytsunami modeling, image registration, finite element modeling and image guided surgery, to name a few.



We are pleased to announce the forthcoming workshop based course “Research Software Engineering with Python”, organised by Research IT Services and the Centre For Medical Image Computing as part of the EPSRC CDT in Medical Imaging.

We are pleased to announce Dr Christos Bergeles as the latest member of staff to join the Translational Imaging Group at UCL. 

Christos’ research interests fall within the application of novel mechatronics for minimally invasive interventions. He is developing flexible instruments for microsurgery, and investigating image processing algorithms for efficient robot end-effector control. Additional interests include the transfer of electromagnetic energy from medical imagers, such as ultrasound and MRI, to medical robots for simultaneous power-delivery and tracking.

The video shows an example of the mosaicing techniques being used in the treatment of Twin-To-Twin Transfusion Syndrome. 

The software stitches together the small field-of-view images produced by the fetoscope (Right-Hand Screen) in real-time, to produce overview of the placenta and its vessels (Left-Hand Screen) as the procedure takes place. 


Prof Sebastien Ourselin has been appointed Director of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME) effective from 14th August 2015. Prof Ourselin succeeds the founder and Director Prof Quentin Pankhurst to continue the establishment of biomedical engineering at UCL.


Prof Ourselin will be working on a strategy for the next stage of IBME which will include the development of research embedded alongside our key clinical partners and a set of large scale anchor translational programmes.
