Center mission

The Center for Neuroimaging is dedicated to advancing the state of the art in research and clinical care of brain disorders through 1) utilizing advanced imaging technologies to understand brain structure and function, 2) investigating the influence of genetic variation on imaging phenotypes in health and illness as well as treatment response, 3) development, assessment, and validation of emerging imaging technologies and analytic approaches, and 4) provision of training and experience in structural, functional and molecular neuroimaging research.  

Educating with Emerging Technologies

Progress wouldn’t be possible without enthusiastic and highly motivated trainees. At the Center for Neuroimaging, IU School of Medicine faculty enable postdoctoral fellows to explore the advances in human brain imaging, medical neurosciences, genomics and computational systems biology through hands-on training. The center’s education program and affiliated faculty are highly transdisciplinary. Collaborating with center experts, trainees help develop, assess and validate emerging technologies by investigating brain structure and function in health, illness and treatment response.
