King's College London and Imperial College London have come together to create an integrated multidisciplinary research facility with an emphasis on teaching and research.
Our vision is to establish a Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Medical Imaging, which brings together two leading research- and educational-focused universities in a unique collaboration to create an interdisciplinary training approach specifically designed to meet challenges in healthcare. With complementary strengths in basic physical sciences, engineering and clinical translation, close strategic and geographical links and a CDT embedded within a top-rated teaching hospital, the King’s College London/Imperial College London partnership has a comprehensive capability to train and nurture the next generation of imaging scientists and research leaders“
Imaging research at King's and Imperial ranges from novel cellular imaging to the full spectrum of pre-clinical and clinical imaging technologies, covering a wide range of diseases. Through the integration of the world-class research and supervision capacities of both partner institutions we will be able to exploit the complementary strengths of the two partners, with King's historically having a stronger focus on clinical translation and Imperial on the core basic science and engineering disciplines. Medical imaging and the progression from ‘bench to bedside’ is a key strategy area for both universities, and the institutions have many scientific and staff links to that will make this a reality.
