Surgery and Interventional Science
The division compasses three research themes: Tissue and Energy, Nanotechnology and Materials and Tissue. Our aim is to understand the causes of human disease and develop innovative therapies and technology to improve the quality of life of the people around us. Within these themes are over 30 world-class research centres specialising in sports medicine, tissue repair, regenerative medicine, oncology, biomedical engineering and laser medicine. The division integrates basic, translational and clinical research through academic and clinical collaborations both within and outside of UCL. We consider research and teaching of equal importance and foster a culture of synergy, where pioneering research informs the provision of teaching. Having each of the division's research themes physically located at a partner hospital, allows for students to work and study directly alongside scientists and clinicians, offering an enhanced research and teaching experience.
