Super Resolution Radial Fluctuations (SRRF) – UCL pioneers algorithm in microscopy

Microscopy has been the major tool for studies of cells and one of the main driving forces for life sciences research. The birth of microscopy in the 16th century led to the first ‘wave of discovery’: the existence of cells and their internal structures. However, fundamental properties of light impose limitations on light microscopes. These prevent scientists from accurately resolving structures smaller than 300 nanometers (nm) – which is just the size range of many cellular compartments, molecular complexes and viruses. 

The future's bright, the future's driverless..

Early in 2016 UCL Transport Institute (UCLTI) was commissioned by the Department for Transport (DfT) to conduct a scoping study into the social and behavioural questions associated with automated vehicles – better known as AVs.

Expert Witness - Professor David Balding

DNA evidence has been used in the criminal justice field for several decades, but in recent years, much smaller and more degraded samples have been able to be used for DNA profiling. UCL's Professor David Balding is the Chair in Statistical Genetics at the Genetics Institute and a pioneer in this breakthrough technique. 

Mapping the People of Scotland

We're living in the age of 'Big Data.' The information bank gathered by everything from social media services to mobile phones is so large that the usual processing applications can't cope. The challenge is to discover the most effective and efficient ways to analyse, share, understand and extract value from it all.
