Welcome to the QUIIN lab website! We are a new ultrasound lab in the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences at King's College London. Our work spans across multiple imaging and therapeutic applications of ultrasound.

 

Please reach out if you are interested in our work or if you would like to join our group!

RESEARCH

Primary Areas of Interest

FOCUSED BRAIN INTERVENTIONS

PI: Antonios Pouliopoulos, PhD

The Focused Brain Interventions (FBI) group develops non-invasive ultrasound therapies for brain diseases. Using focused ultrasound and microbubbles, we temporarily disrupt the tight cell layer that separates our brains from the bloodstream, the so-called blood-brain barrier (BBB). BBB opening allows targeted delivery of therapeutic molecules into the brain for the treatment of diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, brain tumours, etc.

SUPER-RESOLUTION ULTRASOUND IMAGING

PI: Kirsten Christensen-Jeffries, PhD

Our group's research interests include ultrasound and contrast enhanced ultrasound imaging, with a focus on image and signal analysis of ultrasound data, ranging from fundamental studies to clinical applications. Our principal research involves the development of super-resolution ultrasound imaging techniques for quantitative and functional imaging of microvascular associated diseases.

ULTRASOUND FOR IMAGING & MATERIAL CHARACTERISATION

PI: Laura Peralta Pereira, PhD

The main goal of our group is to investigate and develop advanced ultrasound methods for screening, monitoring, and interventional guidance. Our research is multidisciplinary and involves theory, numerical and experimental methods in the intersecting fields of mechanics, physics, and engineering. Our aim is to provide advanced images that are more informative than current medical ultrasound, with a large field of view, increased spatial and temporal resolution, increased depth penetration, and enhanced capabilities to extract physiological properties.
