James Choi


Dr James J. Choi leads the Noninvasive Surgery & Biopsy Laboratory ( and is Lecturer (equivalent to Assistant Professor in the USA) in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London.

The research aims of the Noninvasive Surgery & Biopsy Laboratory is to enable physicians to operate on vital organs using incision-less ultrasound-based microsurgical devices and methods. For patients, this implies not only accessible, painless, and infection-free techniques, but also potent therapeutic and diagnostic capabilities never achieved before. The laboratory’s current focus is on three research themes:

    Theme 1: Drug Delivery using Molecular and Cellular Surgery
    Theme 2: Drug Distribution Enhancement using Fluid Micropumping
    Theme 3: Tissue Elasticity Imaging using Remote Palpation
