Training Overview

Our center brings together collaborative translational research teams to develop high-impact biomedical imaging technologies aimed at improving clinical practice and patient care. As part of our mission, we train students and colleagues from near and far in use of our technologies and in successful operation of interdisciplinary translational research teams.


Biennial i2i Workshop

We hold a biennial workshop titled from innovation to implementation in imaging, or i2i. Medical imaging experts from academia, industry, clinics, and startups across the world come to New York for two days of scientific sessions about the latest trends in hardware and software used for image acquisition, reconstruction, analysis, and interpretation. A poster session accompanies invited and proffered talks. After the scientific sessions, guests convene for evening events.


Visiting Scientist and Scientist Envoys

We host students, researchers, clinicians, and translational scientists for extended visits that offer hands-on training and experience in the operation of matrixed, interdisciplinary translational research teams. Many of these visits result in publications and contribute to development of new imaging techniques.

We also dispatch experts from our Center to institutions around the world for research and training visits. These scientist envoys train colleagues at remote institutions in the use of our technologies and in the operation of translational research teams modeled after our own.


50-50 Clinician-Researcher Program

The Department of Radiology at NYU Langone Health, which operates our Center, sponsors protected research time for a number of clinical radiologists from a variety of specialties, including breast imaging, neuroimaging, muskuloskeletal imaging, and abdominal imaging. These clinician-researchers work closely with physicists, engineers, and computer scientists to define pressing clinical needs and to investigate, develop, and evaluate high-impact imaging solutions.


Doctoral Training in Biomedical Imaging & Technology

The doctoral program in biomedical imaging technologies offered by the Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences at NYU School of Medicine is taught predominantly by our faculty. Doctoral candidates engage closely with imaging scientists who work at the forefront of their fields of interest. Students routinely contribute to technology developments at our Center, author scientific papers, and present at international conferences. Alumni of the program have gone on to careers in academia and industry.
