Training in Biomedical Imaging Instrumentation

Stanford Imaging Symposium

September 19, 2017



Our mission is to train the next generation of researchers in and inventors of biomedical imaging technology. With funding from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), we are able to offer this program, Training in Biomedical Imaging Instrumentation (TBI2), to well-qualified applicants.

Imaging technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, generating new techniques in research today that will become the standard of care for tomorrow. There is a high need for trained researchers in this field to fill positions in academia, industry, and government.

Stanford University has a unique multidisciplinary research effort in biomedical imaging, spanning magnetic resonance, computed tomography and radiography, ultrasound, PET, and hybrid imaging such as X-ray/MR and PET/MR, as well as image processing and analysis for diagnosis, radiation therapy, and basic science. Our depth in magnetic resonance research is well recognized, as are our research efforts in all other modalities. Stanford University has outstanding schools of engineering, medicine, and humanities and sciences, all on a single campus. We have developed unique coursework that attracts students not only from across the United States, but also from other countries. Graduates from existing programs are highly sought after, filling faculty and industry research positions internationally.

Emphasis on Diversity

Our program aims to recruit a diverse group of American students. Stanford University is committed to training a diverse group of students, including underrepresented minorities, those with disabilities, and those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The TBI2 program capitalizes on the diversity and outreach efforts made in cooperating departments, such as:
