Daniel Elson is a Professor of Surgical Imaging and Biophotonics in the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery, Institute of Global Health Innovation and Department of Surgery and Cancer at St. Mary's Hospital. Research interests are based around the development and application of photonics technology to medical imaging, including multispectral imaging, near infrared fluorescence, structured lighting, light sources in endoscopy and diffuse and fluorescence spectroscopy.
