The BioMedical Engineering and Imaging Institute (BMEII). BMEII focuses on the use of multimodality imaging for brain, heart, and cancer research, along with research in nanomedicine for precision imaging and drug delivery. BMEII is composed of research groups in all aspects of imaging research.
We are located at the Leon and Norma Hess Center for Science and Medicine. At BMEII, our team conducts cutting-edge research and accommodate the evolution of research platforms as new technologies emerge in the future.
Currently, the BioMedical Engineering and Imaging Institute has over 45 members with expertise in translational imaging research. BMEII is currently staffed to support all the image acquisition, image analysis, scheduling, and performance of experiments.
BMEII serves as a research catalyst for a new generation of translational and molecular imaging methodologies. BMEII applies and validates imaging modalities, in both preclinical basic science and clinical research settings,
