UCL Centre for Medical Image Computing



CMIC was established in 2005 to act as an interface between engineering and biomedical sciences.

The centre has grown from 5 academic staff and about 30 researchers (2005) to 17 academic staff and about 150 research staff (2015). Governance is through a board of directors with input from all academic staff, together with a variety of student and post-doc-led committees and representatives.

Key goals of the centre include:


To make impact on key medical challenges facing 21st century society and to perform world leading research on medical imaging, image-analysis problems and applications.


To provide resources, leadership, mentoring, and career development for all its members, as well as a collaborative research environment with high national and international visibility. 

A core principle of CMIC is to cover the complete imaging pathway: from basic numerical techniques through to application-driven software systems. This provides close communication along this pathway, which focusses early-stage development on real problems, and ensure that front-line systems use the latest underlying technology.
