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 research, vascular imaging and magnetic resonance physics, computational systems biology, tsunami 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.
