Andrew Todd-Pokropek is currently Professor of Medical Physics, a joint post created at University College London (Dept. of Medical Physics) and the Institute of Child Health (Physics and Radiology), and Director of the Research Unit U494 of the French Medical Research Organisation INSERM. As an undergraduate he read Physics at the University of Oxford. His first post was (as Assistant Lecturer 1964-1972) at the Institute of Nuclear Medicine, The Middlesex Hospital Medical School where he undertook his postgraduate studies. He assisting in the then rapid development of nuclear medicine instrumentation, was involved in the development of one of the first computer systems for use in medical imaging, and participated in the design of the first SPECT system in Europe. In 1972 he spent a sabbatical year at the Institut Gustave Roussy in France (and has maintained his 'French connection' up to the present date). He returned to London to take up a post as Senior Lecturer at the then University College Hospital Medical School, which eventually become part of University College London. He was appointed Reader in 1989 and Professor in 1993. Although he started his professional life in the area of nuclear medicine (in the basement running a whole body counter) he has become increasingly involved with medical image processing and data handling, firstly in nuclear medicine (for example in scatter and attenuation correction) and latterly in radiology in general. His areas of research extend from finding solutions for inverse problems to defining standards for medical image transfer (in particular for nuclear medicine) to developing expert systems for use in medicine. He has widely published and been invited to lecture by many different national and international organizations.
