University College London

The department of Computer Science at University College London is brought together by a clear focus on experimental computer science. This department is concerned with real-world data and observations about computer and software systems and their use. It develops theory that leads to hypotheses that can be checked experimentally, and where experimentation delivers results forming a basis for theory. This shared experimental orientation, which emphasizes measurement, methodological rigour and ultimately reproducibility, not only binds together its research but determines its strategy and policy towards recruitment, directs our investment and underpins its research education. The Department is a global leader in research in experimental computer science. Research Groups are strong, broad-based, disciplinary teams associated with laboratories. These groups are formally established and constitute the focus for strategic development within the Department. Professor Simon Arridge is part of the Department of Computer Science at the University College London. He is an honorary lecturer at the Department of Medical Physics, where he helped pioneer the field ofOpticat Tomography, as part of the Biomedical Optics Research Laboratory. He is also an honorary lecturer at the institute of Neurology, where he collaborates on Magnetic Resonance Image Processing and analysis. He is the tutor for the MSc in Vision, Imaging and Virtual Environment.

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.
