Course summary

Overview

A diverse and talented group working across the whole Medtech sector, we advance research, innovation and teaching progress through our shared missing of engineering better health for patients worldwide. Our state-of-the-art and clinical-research facilities are embedded in St Thomas' Hospital where we can ensure our research projects are fully aligned with current clinical practice. Long-term collaborations with global MedTech companies and new partnerships with innovative start-ups ensure multiple pathways to translation. Research is organised into ambitious, large-scale and long-term research projects supported by our six departments. This diverse infrastructure allows us to combine expertise and apply the latest healthcare concepts to deliver ground breaking results. We pass this integrated approach to the next generation of healthcare specialist who study with our lecturers. Courses with practical training and real-world application at their core, taking place at the UK's most research active NHS Trust. Joint PhDs available: exciting opportunities to gain a joint PhD with Universidad Católica de Chile (Santiago de Chile, Chile).

Course detail

The School brings together physicists, chemists, biologists, mathematicians, computer scientists and clinicians working in biomedical engineering, medical imaging and image-guided therapy into six departments: Surgical and Interventional Engineering, Cardiovascular Imaging, Cancer Imaging, Biomedical Engineering, Imaging Chemistry and Biology, and Perinatal Imaging and Health. We are keen to recruit PhD students from all these disciplines. All imaging modalities are studied including MR, x-ray, CT, ultrasound, PET and SPECT as well as therapeutic nuclear medicine. On-going projects range from the development of new imaging agents and technology and computational image analysis, machine learning and modelling, through to the clinical assessment of new imaging methods. We have a wide range of work from studies of the basic science of imaging to research into specific clinical areas such as cardiology, neuropsychiatry, oncology, radiotherapy and surgery. Our work is carried out in close collaboration with other groups within the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine and associated hospitals. Exciting opportunities are now available to undertake a joint PhD programme with the Universidad Católica de Chile, for topics specifically relating to Biological and Medical Engineering (Biomedical Imaging, Cellular and Molecular Engineering, Tissue Engineering and Biomechanics and Quantitative Physiology). Applicants for the Joint PhD programme must contact the relevant departments at both universities before submitting an application in order to discuss the suitability of their topic for the joint programme and to locate potential supervisors. Applications should initially be submitted to the proposed home institution only, ie where the student will start and finish their programme. Students should note that acceptance onto the programme may take slightly longer than for single-institution PhDs because of the additional steps involved.
