Our multidisciplinary focus and close integration between disease-oriented and basic science and technology programs have provided the foundation for our success. We have maintained a top 5 NIH research funding position among American radiology departments for the past 25 years.
Our research programs cross a wide disciplinary spectrum with considerable strength in:
- Molecular imaging
- Biomedical imaging informatics
- Cancer imaging, particularly breast and animal models, as well as studies at the cellular level
- Cardiovascular imaging
- Musculoskeletal imaging
- Neurofunctional imaging
- Method development, such as magnetic resonance imaging techniques, imaging agents, image processing, and optical imaging
- Interventional radiology
Our radiology research efforts are organized into imaging core facilities, supported by an Administrative Core, and research labs.
