Institute of Clinical Science

Institute of Clinical Science

The Clinical Sciences Centre (CSC) is based on the Hammersmith campus of Imperial College London. It was established initially in 1994 by the Medical Research Council (MRC) to provide a focus of strength in basic science in a clinical environment with the aims of, firstly, undertaking high quality basic science underpinning our understanding of human disease and, secondly, providing the core competencies required to facilitate the translation of this understanding into improved diagnosis and treatment. The CSC became the third directly funded MRC Institute in 1998 and forms part of the Institute of Clinical Sciences.

 

Dr Alessandro Sardini is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the institute of Clinical Science and is based in the Hammersmith Hospital in London. He is also part of the Imaging Physics and Engineering Group, which is researching the science and technology of medical imaging. They have programmes focused on MR Physics and Image Analysis, Ultrasound, and Metamaterials.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
