To open up the world of cutting-edge medical imaging research, ART x SCIENCE brings together students from the School for Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Science at King’s College London and the Royal College of Art. This is an experiment into what can happen when professionals from two seemingly different worlds collaborate. How will their differences – their backgrounds, skills, and perspectives – and their similarities – the fact that both rely on inquiry and questioning – combine?

About The Royal College of Art

The School For Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Science’s mission is to engineer better health for patients in the UK and worldwide through research and teaching excellence. The school pushes the limits of technical innovation by breaking down conventional discipline boundaries. Located within a hospital environment, the school generates tangible clinical and commercial translation through our stimulating collaborations to achieve the unexpected.

The Royal College of Art provides students with unrivalled opportunities to deliver art and design projects that transform the world. A small, specialist and research-intensive postgraduate university based in the heart of London, the RCA is a high performing institution, a radical traditionalist in a fast paced world. The RCA’s approach is founded on the premise that art, design, creative thinking, science, engineering and technology must all collaborate to solve today’s global challenges.
