This lunchtime Dr Marc Modat, an academic lecturer from the Translational Imaging Group, is delivering a lecture at UCL for the Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering, on the subject of 'Medical Image Registration for Neuroimaging Biomarkers Extraction' 

Researchers from the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) and the Translational Imaging Group presented innovative new findings in orthopaedic research to an audience of 30,000 at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons last week. Professor Alister Hart’s 10 strong research team from RNOH presented a total of 24 papers at the back-to-back meetings of the conference, which was held in Las Vegas, US, Tuesday 24th March – Saturday 28th March.The centrepiece of their work is a collaboration with the Translational Imaging Group.

The first edition of the UCL Medical Image Computing Summer School (MedICSS) aims to allow young scientists from the international community to engage with world renowned experts in a diverse range of medical image computing topics and learn about the state-of-the-art in the field. In addition to lectures by scientific and clinical leaders, every day will include activity-based learning through interactive breakout sessions which will foster interaction among the participants, critical thinking and scientific discovery. 

Hervé will be presenting some of its latest work on Tuesday 10th of March at 13:00 in the Wolfson House Haldane Lecture Theatre.

His talk will be entitled "Brain Transfer" for Fast Cortical Matching via Spectral Correspondence
