We are delighted to announce that Frederik Barkhof has joined University College London as Professor of Neuroradiology, in effect from Monday 1st of October.

Whilst at UCL Professor Barkhof will work equally with the Institute of Neurology at the Faculty of Brain Sciences and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering.


A total of 14 TIG members participated in MICCAI 2015, which was held in Munich, Germany from 5th – 9th October 2015. Our work this year covered areas ranging from neuroimaging and imaging genetics to fetal imaging and ophthalmology. A full list of papers which were accepted from members of TIG can be found here. Videos of many of these papers can be found here.


We would also like to thank Nassir Navab and Joachim Hornegger for organising such a great event!

See you next year in Istanbul... 


The TIG team had two awards at this year's MICCAI:

  • Tom Vercauteren received the "Best reviewer" award
  • Andre Altman received the "Best paper award" @ MLMI (Bernard Ng, Anna Milazzo, and Andre Altmann, “Node-based Gaussian Graphical Model for Identifying Discriminative Brain Regions from Connectivity Graphs“).

From the 14 members of TIG that participated in MICCAI 2015, 8 presented their work at the main conference. 5 min teasers from these papers can be seen by clicking "read more". 



Dr. Christos Bergeles gets awarded the New Lecturer's Small Grant by Fight for Sight. The award will support him towards research and development of an ophthalmoscope capable of single-shot 3D retinal imaging. 3D retinal imaging can provide physiological information that quantifies the progression of glaucoma as well as various neurological conditions, and, thus, the introduction of novel imaging methodologies can have significant societal impact.



Make sure you don't miss GIFT-Surg at the Bloomsbury Festival on Saturday 24 October.

We'll be at the festival as part of the UCL Research Hub in Beveridge Hall, Senate House on the Saturday only, from 12pm. This year Bloomsbury Festival is all about LIGHT and we will be showcasing our research into advanced minimally invasive surgery and how light makes this possible.


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.
