About

At WEISS, engineers, clinicians and computer scientists work together to develop technologies that enable safer and more effective treatments for patients across a wide range of conditions.

We specialise in the fields of surgical and interventional sciences. This means either surgery, being operations where surgeons need to make some kind of cut, or incision to the patient, and interventions being cases where it’s able to do this without so.

We intend for these to underpin the next generation of medicine across a wide range of applications, making life changing treatments more safe and more accessible for patients.

Our Centre is based at Charles Bell House, a building that brings together researchers from departments within the Faculty of Engineering, such as The Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical EngineeringComputer Science and Mechanical Engineering, and places them alongside clinical researchers from the Faculty of Medical Sciences and divisions such as the Division of Surgery and Interventional Sciences. 

This close, interdisplinary integration allows clinicians to feed in their experiences to inform the direction and design of research, creating engineering solutions with the applications firmly in mind. It helps us ensure that innovation is always directed towards patient benefit.
