Course summary

Bioimaging sciences have played a vital role in improving human life. A wide range of imaging techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), ultrasound and optical imaging, are now important tools for:

  • the early detection of disease
  • understanding basic molecular aspects of living organisms
  • the evaluation of medical treatment

This multi-disciplinary course covers the fundamentals of modern imaging methodologies, including their techniques and application within medicine and the pharmaceutical industry. It also covers the chemistry behind imaging agents and biomarkers. Imperial's research strength in imaging sciences is recognised both nationally and internationally, as exemplified by the creation of the Imaging Sciences Centre (ISC). The course will progress interdisciplinary development in imaging sciences and create a multidisciplinary team involving chemists, immunologists, radiologists, image scientists, physicists, biomedical scientists and computer scientists.


Our MRes in Bioimaging Sciences places graduates in an excellent position to begin a PhD or pursue an industrial career in imaging science. You will have developed the ability to carry out research within multidisciplinary teams, and possess knowledge of basic and advanced concepts in bioimaging sciences. The course aims to produce highly trained and motivated scientists who will be ideal candidates for research (industrial and academic) positions within imaging science. With the current world-wide lack of well-trained imaging scientists we are confident that MRes in Bioimaging Sciences graduates will have exceptional career prospects.
