My name is Faysal and I am a second year PhD student at the Centre for Doctoral Training in Smart Medical Imaging at King’s College London and Imperial College London. The aim of my PhD project, supervised by Prof Mark Green (King’s College London) and Dr James Wilton-Ely (Imperial College London), is to develop nanomaterials for use as imaging probes, which can be detected outside of the body to aid with disease diagnoses, thereby preventing the need to undergo surgery.
Having reopened our recruitment for the 2021/22 academic year, we are pleased to announce that we are holding a virtual application clinic between 4pm-5pm GMT on 30 March, where CDT staff and students will be on hand to answer prospective applicants’ questions about the application process, including those concerning filling out the application form.

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
