The award is granted every two years for outstanding work.
The School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences at King’s has been awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for higher and further education. This award is granted by The Queen every two years for outstanding work that delivers tangible benefits to the public.
With over 550 staff from a range of disciplines, the School is composed of six multidisciplinary departments, five strategic research Centres, as well as clinical and corporate partners. It also benefits from the King’s Health Partnership, which brings together education, research and clinical practice within NHS Trusts. The School is fully embedded at St Thomas’ Hospital which supports the development of innovative medical technologies with a short translation period.
The award was collected by Professor Phil Blower along with the head of school, Professor Sebastien Ourselin, at evening celebration at Buckingham Palace.
