Biomolecular Imaging and Biophysics
Granted By: Indiana University
Academic Unit: IU School of Medicine
Overview: Imaging plays a central role in advancing modern biomedical and biophysical research. Imaging reveals the three-dimensional structure of individual proteins, allowing their function to be understood at the molecular level. New methods of microscopy reveal the dynamic nature of cells and previously invisible aspects of organ physiology and pathophysiology. It is increasingly the case that major advances in cell and molecular biology, physiology and the understanding of human disease are driven by the development and application of new imaging methods. The training provided by this unique program in both biomedical science and the physical basis of a wide range of imaging methods will allow you to take a lead in new avenues of biomedical research that are opened up by the application and development of imaging methods.
