We are pleased to announce that Dr. Juan Eugenio Iglesias is joining the Translational Imaging Group at UCL. Dr. Iglesias has been awarded a Starting Grant from the European Research Council titled “Building Next-Generation Computational Tools for High Resolution Neuroimaging Studies”. The goal of this project is to build a set of computational tools that will enable neuroimaging studies to take full advantage of the increased resolution of modern MR technology. Other research interests of Dr. Iglesias’s include shape models and discriminative techniques for medical image segmentation.

Dr. Christos Bergeles from TIG will be presenting his work on microsurgical robots for vitreoretinal interventions at the 100% Optical Event at Excel London on Monday 8th February. He was invited as a member of the Speaker Network from Fight for Sight.


100% Optical is a premier EU event around ophthalmology and optometry, and attracts several thousand of participants from industry, clinic, and research.
