Wellcome / EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences (WEISS)
At the Wellcome/EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences (WEISS), engineers, clinicians and scientists work together to develop technologies that enable safer and more effective treatments for patients across a wide range of conditions.
The Centre is based at Charles Bell House, a building that brings together researchers from a wide range of departments at UCL, including Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. These academic researchers work in partnership with clinical researchers from areas such as the UCL Division of Surgery & Interventional Sciences and leading hospitals.
At WEISS, research is being developed with a wide range of clinical applications in mind, including cardiovascular, paediatric, ophthalmic, neurological and urological surgical interventions. In particular, the Centre aims to advance engineering sciences in intraoperative imaging and sensing, data fusion and extraction, human-technology interfaces, tissue modelling, interventional instrumentation, and surgical navigation.
