Message from the Director

Daniel Turnbull, Ph.D.

Welcome to the Graduate Training Program in Biomedical Imaging!

Biomedical imaging methods such as ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) have revolutionized biomedical science and clinical patient care, providing a vast array of tools for medical diagnosis and treatment monitoring. The field of biomedical imaging continues to grow rapidly, each year spawning important new technologies and exciting new applications. In this fast-paced development of new diagnostic approaches and technologies, it is imperative to train the next generation of biomedical scientists using imaging approaches in their research, and to translate their developments to the pre-clinical and clinical imaging arenas.

The Graduate Training Program in Biomedical Imaging addresses this need, providing an interdisciplinary environment for inherently translational research. We combine state-of-the-art facilities, an outstanding curriculum of practical and theoretical courses, and a philosophy of team-based research involving faculty members with expertise in multiple areas of basic and clinical science. Our students gain a firm grounding in the physical principles underlying MRI and other biomedical imaging approaches, an understanding of the biological processes underlying multiple diseases, and the practical experience of performing ground-breaking research at the forefront of imaging sciences.

Brief History of the Program

​In 2004, soon after the establishment of the Center for Biomedical Imaging (CBI) as the research center of NYU’s Department of Radiology, we began to teach graduate courses on the principles of MRI and other imaging methods. As the interest in biomedical imaging grew, and an outstanding group of imaging researchers was recruited to CBI, we established the Graduate Training Program in Biomedical Imaging in 2007. As a vigorous young graduate program, we are passionate about our research and proud of the growing list of publications and achievements of our students. To learn more about our program, I invite you to look though the pages on this website that describe our research facilities, faculty, courses and especially the pages that each student has contributed to describe their research project and accomplishments.
