GIFT-Cloud Diagram

An open-source cloud storage platform called GIFT-Cloud which allows for multi-institute, high-volume clinical imaging research with automatic anonymisation has been released by UCL researchers. 

TIG has had 31 pieces of work accepted for this year ISMRM in Honolulu, Hawai'i (April 22nd-27th) including 9 oral presentations. We look forward to presenting this work at the conference in April.

Dr. Christos Bergeles gave the honorary talk at the Greek Vitreoretinal Society Congress ( on 14th January 2017, titled "Advanced robotics for retinal micro-interventions and therapeutics delivery". The conference took place from 12th January 2017 to 14th January 2017, and several leading international ophthalmologists participated to discuss best clinical practices and new technological developments in vitreoretinal surgery.

UCL has been selected as the 'hub' of the new £250m UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI), to be led by Professor Bart De Strooper, current leader of the Laboratory for the Research of Neurodegenerative Diseases at the University of Leuven.

Our research on Light-Field for Medical Imagigng, including Ophthalmoscopy, is featured at the "Innovators" issue of "The Ophthalmologist". The research, supported by Fight for Sight and Academy of Medical Sciences/Wellcome Trust, is led by Drs. Christos Bergeles (UCL) and Pearse Keane (Moorfields Eye Hospital).
