Imperial College London

Course Introduction

This programme is funded by UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) for up to 4 years and the purpose is to develop a smart surgical imaging device that integrates in situ sensing and mechatronic control to allow for flexible and consistent tissue characterisation at cellular level during minimally invasive surgery (MIS); it addresses specific research and engineering challenges related to: super'resolution image reconstruction; bio'mechanical integration of miniaturised optical probes; biophotonics and endomicroscopes; in vivo motion tracking, localisation and mosaicing for tissue characterisation during MIS.

Course Additional Entry

Good Honours degree (2.1 or above) in a related discipline, ideally with prior experience in interdisciplinary research.
