Gilad Amzaleg graduated from the University of Nottingham with a First Class Masters Degree in Physics with Medical Physics in 2015. During his time at Nottingham he specialised in medical imaging, doing his 3rd year research project on basic NMR imaging. In this project he implemented a simple pulse sequence program and built a small NMR kit from scratch.
For his 4th Year Masters project he conducted research into automating the Quality Assurance process of clinical Ultrasound imaging probes. His research under Dr Paul Morgan and Dr Nick Gibson, at the Queens Medical Centre Nottingham, included the implementation of image analysis techniques to detect probe errors in “in-air” Ultrasound images. Publication is currently in waiting.
Gilad has also undertaken external internships in medical physics as a Junior Scientific Consultant for Advanced Oncotherapy Ltd, a start-up company working on building new techniques for Proton Beam Therapy. In this short, summer internship he worked effectively with the scientific team in CERN, Geneva and represented the company at the Royal Society’s Summer Science Exhibition 2013.
In 2015, Gilad was accepted onto the EPSRC & MRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Biomedical Imaging at the University of Oxford, St Catherine’s College. This involved one year of interdisciplinary training and two short term summer projects. In 2016 Gilad joined BUBBL as a DPhil student under the supervision of Professor Eleanor Stride. Gilad is continuing on his summer project, looking into the potential of using magnetically targeted ultrasound microbubbles as drug delivery agents for the clinical treatment of pseudoanearysms in the common femoral artery.
