The Institute of Cancer Research

The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. The ICR is led by Chief Executive, Professor Paul Workman – an expert in cancer drug discovery. We are world leaders in identifying cancer genes, discovering cancer drugs and developing precision radiotherapy. Together with our hospital partner The Royal Marsden, we are rated in the top four centres for cancer research and treatment worldwide. As well as being as world-class research institute, the ICR is a higher education institution and a college of the University of London. We came top in the league table of university research quality compiled from the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014). The ICR has charitable status and relies on support from partner organisations, charities, donors and the general public.

University of Leeds

At University of Leeds, our research covers all aspects of Ultrasound and Ultrasonics. Example areas of research include: medical imaging, medical therapeutics, modelling of physical phenomena, non-destructive evaluation and test, and ultrasonic instrumentation development. Ultrasound is a multi-disciplinary research topic. Our research group has a variety of different facilities and resources ranging from laboratories for biological work, to computer modelling packages for mechanical design, and electronic design software. We also design instrumentation and hardware systems for ultrasonic applications for both medical and non-medical applications.

The British Medical Ultrasound Society is a multi-disciplinary body whose objectives are:

  • The advancement of the science and technology of ultrasonics as applied to medicine.
  • The maintenance of the highest standards in these fields.
  • The advancement of education and research in these areas, and dissemination of the results.
  • The provision of advice and information regarding ultrasound to the public at large.

The Society originated in 1969 from a conference organised by the Hospital Physicists Association (a predecessor of the Institute of Physics & Engineering in Medicine) and the British Institute of Radiology.  It was initially an informal ultrasound group (the British Medical Ultrasound Group), the society took its present name in 1977 when it became affiliated to the European and World Federations of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology. Status as a Registered Charity and Company Limited by Guarantee and not having a share capital, was attained in 1984.


istuThe International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound (ISTU) is a non-profit organization founded in 2001 to increase and diffuse knowledge of therapeutic ultrasound to the scientific and medical community, and to facilitate the translation of therapeutic ultrasound techniques into the clinical arena for the benefit of patients worldwide.


eufusThe European Focused Ultrasound Charitable Society is a research and education organization serving as a philanthropic forum to establish research funding, sharing experiences, reviewing best practices and promoting cooperation in the field of Focused Ultrasound for better patient treatment.
