Unique PhD Opportunities
Our students enter their programme as a cohort and maintain contact with each other throughout their research projects. They come from a variety of academic backgrounds, including engineering, chemistry, biology, mathematics, computer science, biochemistry and physics.
Through our research, we look to build smart new technologies into the entire medical imaging process. PhD projects are directed towards at least one our smart medical imaging themes: AI-enabled imaging, Smart imaging probes, Emerging imaging and Affordable imaging.
Our CDT was designed and is managed with the help of our industry partners. There are many ways for companies to engage with us, including research project sponsorship, Industrial Board membership, student placement opportunities, mentoring provision and more.
Students per cohort from a range of STEM backgrounds
academic supervisors from 19 departments
clinical champions supervising students
HOSPITALS (NHS FOUNDATION TRUSTS) involved
Industry Funding committed
