Kev Dhaliwal MD, PhD, FRCP is Professor of Molecular Imaging & Healthcare Technology at the University of Edinburgh and a clinically active Consultant Physician in Respiratory Medicine. He has subspecialist clinical interests are in Interventional Medicine and infection.
He leads a research and translational group with an ethos of technology to man with embedded product development, manufacture and clinical evaluation. He is chief investigator on 6 first-in-human trials ranging from the intensive care unit to lung cancer evaluating optical imaging and therapeutic approaches.
He leads the interdisciplinary hub of scientists as part of the Proteus Project (www.proteus.ac.uk), the UK’s largest healthcare bio-photonics project which is an Engineering Physical Sciences Research Council Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration developing next-generation translational technologies for in situ pulmonary molecular imaging and sensing.
Proteus is developing incisive molecular imaging approaches to delineate key pathophysiological processes in vivo in situ. In particular advances in sensing and characterising distal lung biology during interventional procedures with molecular resolution. He leads a Healthcare Technology Accelerator Facility that is Focussing on Interventional approaches across organ systems and across technology boundaries.
