Research & publications

Mr Saso is an Honorary Clinical Lecturer at the Institute of Reproductive and Developmental Biology, Imperial College London. He is a great believer in translational clinical and academic work that have the potential for ‘cross-fertilisation’ between medical and non-medical specialties. His main research interests lie in gynaecological surgery (cancer and non-cancer) and the diagnostic application of ultrasound, with a particular focus on fertility-sparing surgery and oncofertility in general. Hence, the management of gynaecological issues in women who have not started or completed their families.

His other main research themes focus on the growing influence of Artificial Intelligence (and technology in general) in gynaecology. In particular, focusing on the relationship between machine learning and ovarian cancer diagnosis. Finally, Mr Saso is currently a co-investigator and part of the UK Uterine Transplantation team.

He also sits on the Scientific Board of the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, one of the world’s biggest organisations looking at improving Women’s Health. All publications are available from the US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.
