Healthcare Technologies

The Healthcare Technologies research theme includes researchers developing, applying and evaluating new technologies for improving patient care. We work across a wide range of scales from the whole person to the nanoscale, and are interested in diagnosis, treatment and management of clinical problems.

The theme comprises clinicians, scientists, engineers and mathematicians with a broad range of expertise from modelling to experiment to application. Theme members work across the following research areas:


We hold occasional seminars to encourage cross-disciplinary networking within the theme, and to provide a forum for supporting research students and staff. Please see the ISTM Events Calendar for details; all welcome.
