UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology


Division of Neuroradiology & Neurophysics

Welcome to the Division of Neuroradiology & Neurophysics at the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology.


To develop and implement novel, safe, and effective magnetic resonance imaging methods to advance our understanding of how the central and peripheral nervous systems work and translate them to improve patient care.

Mission statement

The Division of Neuroradiology and Neurophysics (DNN) promotes academic neuroradiology and neuroimaging physics at Queen Square. Since its inception, its core objectives have been to support its members in all aspects of their professional career, to provide an environment for the academic and clinical members to interact and to ensure an open and constructive engagement between MR groups across the IoN. It therefore functions effectively as a cross-cutting theme spanning activities ranging from basic scientific developments through to clinical implementation.


The DNN brings together Academic Neuroradiologists, Physicists, Computer Scientists and Radiographers at the UCL Institute of Neurology, and research-oriented Clinical Neuroradiologists, Clinical Scientists and Radiographers at the NHNN.

The imaging groups represented in the Division are: the Neuroradiological Academic Unit, the NMR Research Unit of the Queen Square MS Centre, the Epilepsy Imaging research group and the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging; furthermore there is representation and involvement of the Faculty of Engineering Centre for Medical Imaging Computing (CMIC).
