Mark Lythgoe is the Director of the UCL Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging (CABI) and Professor of Biomedical imaging. Mark founded the Centre in 2009, the first multidisciplinary research centre for experimental imaging within UCL, and has subsequently been integral to developing an imaging strategy across the university. The Centre now hosts eight state-of-the-art imaging modalities: MRI, photoacoustic imaging, ultrasound, bioluminescence and fluorescence imaging, CT/radiotherapy, SPECT/CT and confocal endoscopy.

Mark currently leads a group of 30 researchers and PhD students in a programme of study focusing on developing new imaging methods. Mark has published over 100 papers including publications in Nature, Nature Medicine and The Lancet. He has been awarded over £20 million in grants and collaborating with Profs Hawkes and Ng, the Centre has been awarded Comprehensive Cancer Imaging Centre status from CRUK and EPSRC (£10 million).
In 2009, Mark received an MRC four-year Capacity Building Studentship Award (8 PhD studentships in total) to train a new generation of researchers who will remedy the shortage of imaging scientists in the research community. Based on this award, he also founded and co-directs the UCL Doctoral Training Programme in Biomedical Imaging (15 students each year).
committed to public engagement, and during his tenure as Director of the
Cheltenham Science Festival, Mark has grown it to be one of the largest science
festivals in the world. Mark have given
over 200 invited lectures, made 10 programmes for radio or television, and contributed to 36 other programmes. Mark holds the Davies Medal for a
significant contribution to imaging science, as well as awards from the
Biosciences Federation and British Associated for the Advancement of Science
for his contributions to public engagement.
