KCL Centre for Medical Engineering Imaging Bioresource

The Centre for Medical Engineering Imaging Bioresource will provide a resource of clinical data, clinical images (e.g. MRI/PET scans) and biological samples (blood, saliva, formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue) to be used in medical research with the following research focus: · Improving long-term neurological outcomes of sick infants and children and developing biomarkers to stratify and optimise treatment in neuropsychiatric disease. · Improving outcomes of patients with chronic cardiac conditions, particularly structural and ischaemic heart disease, heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias. · Improving the care of patients with cancer with better stratification and improved treatment selection, as well as identifying ineffective treatments early so they can be changed. The Centre for Medical Engineering Imaging focuses on the science and engineering of medical imaging. Scientific and technological breakthroughs in this area have changed our understanding of disease and clinical practice, and have significant potential for further transformative impact. Our ultimate aim is to improve the care and outcomes of patients with neurological, cardiovascular and oncological conditions. We aim to deliver this by providing the infrastructure needed to deliver strong, grant-funded research through building a unique Imaging Bioresource with novel ways of extracting and presenting information. We wish to maximise the use of the data we produce by creating an Imaging Bioresource for the collection of images along with clinical information and biological specimens (e.g. blood, saliva, tissue) for analyses. Applications with research questions in the remit of the Centre for Medical Engineering Imaging will be considered for approval: “To improve outcomes for patients with neurological, cardiovascular and oncological conditions using our underpinning research themes of physics and engineering, computer science, imaging chemistry and interventional engineering.” For further information please contact: imaging-bioresource@kcl.ac.uk
