UCL EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Intelligent Integrated Imaging in Healthcare



We have a dedicated management team and a pool of over 100 supervisors with world-leading medical, engineering and computing expertise in imaging sciences.

The success of our CDT is made possible by the strong network of researchers, clinicians and high-achieving students, all steered by a strong management team.

Centre staff

The centre is managed, under the directorship of Prof Gary Zhang, by a team of academics drawn from both engineering and clinical disciplines. The management team runs the centre day to day.
