Research

Along with patient care and education, imaging research constitutes an integral component of the mission of the Department of Radiology.  Collaborative translational research projects, including both clinicians and non-clinician scientists, are encouraged to advance the science of medical imaging. 

The department supports a dedicated PhD research staff including physicists , chemists, engineers and post-doctoral research associates.  Clinical faculty members receive dedicated time for research efforts, and often work in partnership with the PhD staff.  Support staff include a grants manager, numerous study coordinators and research nurses.  A small animal laboratory provides a convenient facility for animal research with SPECT, PET and micro-CT.  Pilot projects are supported by internal funding from the research committee of the department of radiology.  The research staff is supported by numerous ongoing corporate and federal grants.
