Labs @ NIBIB
The mission of the NIBIB is to improve human health by providing leadership for development and accelerating the application of biomedical technologies. The Institute is committed to integrating engineering and physical sciences with the life sciences to advance basic research and medical care. The Intramural Research Program plays a key role in fulfilling the Institute’s mission, particularly to advance knowledge in imaging and bioengineering research using a combination of basic, translational, and clinical science and to develop effective training programs in related fields. All of the NIBIB laboratories are located on the NIH campus. Click on the below links to learn more about their research programs and resources.
The AIM facility is a trans-NIH shared resource that houses, operates, disseminates, and improves prototype optical imaging systems developed at the NIH.
The LCIMB develops new approaches for determining the organization, structure, and interactions of organelles and macromolecular assemblies.
LOMIN specializes in synthesizing molecular imaging probes, SPECT, MRI, optical, contrast enhanced ultrasound, photoacoustic imaging, and multimodality imaging.
The ICF develops methods, for incorporating radionuclides and fluorophores into molecules, and new imaging tools for studying biologically important processes.
The Section on Quantitative Medical Imaging develops methods to derive biomarkers from data acquired by non-invasive imaging techniques.
The Section on Biophotonics develops probes and techniques for use in diffraction limited and sub-diffraction limited fluorescence imaging of cells and tissues.
The HROI develops novel 3D optical imaging microscope technologies for studying biological processes at ultra-fast speeds and resolution.
The Section on Immuno-Engineering develops immune-active biomaterials for regenerative medicine and seeks to understand how the immune system interacts with biomaterials.
The Section on Mechanobiology develops and utilizes advanced Atomic Force Microscopy technologies for cellular and tissue mechanics studies.
BEPS is a trans-NIH shared resource that supports IRP basic and clinical scientists on applying engineering, physics, imaging, measurement and analysis.
