Graduate Training Grants
The Biomedical Informatics (BMI) Training Program
The BMI Program is committed to training the next generation of researchers in biomedical informatics. Our students gain knowledge of the scholarly informatics literature and the application requirements of specific areas within biology and/or medicine. They learn to design and implement novel methods that are generalizable to a defined class of problems, focusing on the acquisition, representation, retrieval, and analysis of biomedical data and knowledge. The BMI training program encompasses bioinformatics, clinical informatics, and public health informatics.
Training in Biomedical Imaging Instrumentation (TBI2)
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. The Training in Biomedical Imaging Instrumentation Training Grant program (TBI2) is designed to to train the next generation of researchers in and inventors of biomedical imaging technology through funding from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB).
The Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS)
The Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS) was established as an inter-disciplinary program to bring together scientists and physicians who share a common interest in developing and using state-of-the-art imaging technology and developing molecular imaging assays for studying intact biological systems. A multimodality approach using imaging technologies such as positron emission tomography (PET), single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), digital autoradiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), optical bioluminescence, optical fluorescence, and ultrasound are all technologies under active development and investigation. The goals of the program are to fundamentally change how biological research is performed with cells in their intact environment in living subjects and to develop new ways to diagnose diseases and monitor therapies in patients. Areas of active investigation are cancer research, microbiology/immunology, developmental biology and pharmacology.
The Stanford Cancer Imaging Training (SCIT) Program
The Stanford Cancer Imaging Training (SCIT) Program, funded by the National Cancer Institute, aims to train the next generation of researchers in the development and clinical application of advanced techniques for cancer imaging. Our coursework, rich mentored training opportunities, and outstanding resources, provide an active, vibrant program that attracts students nationwide. Graduates from our program are highly sought after, filling faculty and industry research positions internationally. This two-year Training Program accepts only US citizens or permanent residents and will help develop a US workforce to make progress in the battle against cancer.
