The Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging is a new multidisciplinary research centre for experimental imaging. The Centre is built around a number of groups at UCL and brings together in vivo imaging technologies across UCL with specific applications in the biomedical sciences.

Working With Us

Publications & Press

Our aims are to establish an integrated strategy for the development and application of novel in vivo imaging technologies to further understand the mechanisms of disease and develop therapeutic strategies. Furthermore we aim to deliver a multimodal imaging programme to investigate the molecular, functional and structural consequences of the disease process on a range of different scales.

The Centre provides state-of-the-art high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), a new photoacoustic imaging facility, in vivo 2-photon laser-scanning microscopy, ultrasound, bioluminescence and fluorescence imaging, as well as SPECT/CT and PET/CT. The Centre is located in the heart of the UCL campus and is ideally suited for cross-disciplinary work in neuroscience, cardiovascular biology and oncology.

The development of imaging technology is an essential part of the translational pipeline for drug development and personalised medicine, and is important to research in the pharmaceutical industry. These experimental imaging strategies will help to remove major “bottlenecks” in the translation of new discoveries to the clinic and generate the knowledge and understanding to transform human health and well-being.
