The Neuroimaging Training Program (NTP), funded by a grant from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, provides a cohesive curriculum and topic-specific mentorship for PhD students focused on neuroscience and biomedical imaging.
Technological advances in biomedical imaging have the potential to advance knowledge about the underlying etiology of brain disorders, mechanisms of treatment, and predictors of response. The NTP prepares students for careers in which they will further these advances into clinically relevant commercial products and services.
Students in this program have opportunities for research in many settings, including the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital, the Surgical Planning Laboratory at Brigham & Women's Hospital, the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, and the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT. Students do research under the supervision of faculty members who lead major research programs in the areas of cognitive and systems neuroscience, neurodegeneration, CNS oncology, cerebrovascular pathophysiology, psychiatric diagnosis, and image-guided therapy.
