Dry Eye Diagnosis and Monitoring Software

Clinicians at Moorfields Eye Hospital, the leading provider of eye health services in Europe have developed the first medical device which is able to quantify dry eye in a patient. The software quantifies the number, distribution and size of fluorescein staining allowing screening, diagnosis and monitoring of the dry eye and other eye diseases.

SnakeGrid Transformer for CAD

Based on research at UCL Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering Department, SnakeGrid® Transformer is a plug-in software module for the Bentley MicroStation CAD package and allows the conversion of Bentley MicroStation design files "on the fly" between different SnakeGrids®, London Survey Grid, British National Grid settings and local grids such as the Reading Grid.

Non-Volatile Memory – Resistive Random Access Memory RRAM

Research within the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering (E&EE) at UCL has led to the realisation of a new memory device, based on resistive switching which has the potential to be integrated directly onto silicon. The memory device exhibits very fast switching with high resistance contrast, requiring low switching energies and persist for extended periods of time.

Early Diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer Disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disorder affecting half of all the people above 80 years of age. The available diagnostic methods are expensive and are not available to all patients. An easily detectable biomarker that could be used for diagnosis and monitoring of AD is needed. Researchers at UCL Institute of Ophthalmology demonstrated that measuring drusen deposits in the periphery of the eye can be used as diagnostic method for AD.

Compliment Factor H Related 5 protein (CFHR5) and kidney disease

We have demonstrated that an abnormality of the protein Complement Factor H Related 5 (CFHR5) leads to a disposition of complement C3 and kidney failure. we have invented an efficient test for this genetic abnormality and have used it to screen a population. We have also invented an ELISA assay to measure the circulating CFHR5 protein levels in humans. We believe this will be useful in diagnosis and assessment of patients with a variety of diseases including SLE, immune complex glomerulonephritis and perhaps age-related macular degeneration. We have also proposed a role for CFHR5 protein (or agents mimicking its action) in the treatment of these diseases and are currently testing this experimentally.

Superior X-Ray Imaging for Early Detection of Breast Cancer

Professor Robert Speller and his team at University College London have developed a novel phase contrast x-ray technology with the potential for improved image quality and enhanced diagnostic potential when applied to mammography. This technology will provide earlier more accurate detection of breast cancers when compared to current clinical practices.

III-V laser diodes on germanium substrates

The Photonics Research Group at UCL have recently developed and demonstrated a monolithically integrated III-V compound semiconductor photonic structure on a Silicon substrate. The monolithic III-V on Silicon device opens up new possibilities for integrated system-on-a-chip designs with high bandwidth and high data transfer rates.
