UCL Division of Surgery and Interventional Science




Research Department of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science

Advances in materials science have allowed us to enter a new phase in both our understanding and our use of implanted material. No longer are these materials inert substitutes. Increasingly the new materials interact with the body in a dynamic way.

nano technology research

Research Department of Surgical Biotechnology

We bring together a renowned, multidisciplinary group of scientists, academic clinicians, and research facilitators to develop innovative technologies and translate them into clinical practice. Our aim is to drive uptake of innovative treatments and improve surgical practice to enhance patient benefit.

Embryonic stem cell research

Research Department of Targeted Intervention

This Research Department brings together clinicians and scientists from a variety of backgrounds, who are working together to develop highly targeted novel imaging, sensing, management and energy based interventions to detect and cure disease.


Surgical & Interventional Trials Unit

SITU specialises in providing infrastructure for running studies led by surgeons and interventionists within any anatomical site and has a long history of managing large scale multi-centre, multinational randomised controlled clinical trials in solid tumours.
