MRes - Master of Research
Computer Cybernetics Medical Sciences
Medical Robotics and Image-Guided Interventions are two technology-driven areas of medicine that have experienced significant growth and improvement over the last twenty years, due to developments of less invasive treatments.
This is a multidisciplinary field and is led by three internationally-known departments:
All teaching and research will take place in the brand new facilities of the Hamlyn Centre, which is supported by a major endowment from Lady Hamlyn and the Helen Hamlyn Trust, as well as a major medical robotics infrastructure grant from the Wolfson Foundation and the National Institute for Health Research. Taught modules include a mixture of engineering and medical topics such as medical robotics and instrumentation, minimally invasive surgery, medical and surgical imaging, image guided intervention, sensing, perception and neuroergonomics.
By the end of your studies, you will have a broad general knowledge of the current technology used in clinical work, and an interdisciplinary knowledge of how to work in collaboration with surgeons to develop new technological advances. You will also have experience in the methodology and principles of conducting research with application to clinical medicine and surgery, and the skills required to have a successful career within industry, or an academic research position such as a PhD studentship.
Our MRes attracts students from a wide-range of backgrounds in science, engineering and medicine. The course begins with five key taught modules and a group project. Groups will be formed of students from a diverse range of backgrounds to aid peer learning. The individual project will begin with a literature review followed by the research project over a period of approximately eight months. Projects will be selected from a list of topics provided by the Hamlyn academics and others at Imperial or further afield (including industry) and students will rank these according to their preferences. These will be designed to be at the cutting edge of research in this field.
By the end of the course, you will have a broad general knowledge of the current technology used in clinical work, an interdisciplinary knowledge of working in collaboration with surgeons to develop new technological advances, and experience in the methodology and principles of conducting research with application to clinical medicine and surgery. You complete your studies with the skills required to have a successful career within industry, or an academic research position such as a PhD studentship. You are provided with advanced research skills valued both in academia and industry.
Graduates are well placed to apply for further study at PhD level in leading universities, which provides an opportunity to pursue your chosen research area covered in the individual project. We anticipate that this qualification will become widely recognised for students pursuing a career in these areas and the quality will be backed up by the Hamlyn Centre with its world-leading reputation for translational research quality.
