IDEAS collaborates with NIH intramural researchers and provides engineering expertise for biomedical and clinical research driven technology development.
The BETA Center is a NIH-wide resource that brings a focused engineering approach to accelerate the development, validation and dissemination of cutting-edge technologies to address urgent national and global healthcare needs.
The AIM facility is a trans-NIH shared resource that houses, operates, disseminates, and improves prototype optical imaging systems developed at the NIH.
BEPS is a trans-NIH shared resource that supports IRP basic and clinical scientists on applying engineering, physics, imaging, measurement and analysis.
The LCIMB develops new approaches for determining the organization, structure, and interactions of organelles and macromolecular assemblies.
The DMA develops methods for studying reversible interactions of biological macromolecules in solution and at surfaces to understand biological binding events.
The Laboratory on Quantitative Medical Imaging develops methods to derive biomarkers from data acquired by non-invasive imaging techniques.
The ICF develops methods, for incorporating radionuclides and fluorophores into molecules, and new imaging tools for studying biologically important processes.
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.
Section on Mechanics and Tissue Remodeling Integrating Computational & Experimental Systems (MATRICES)
Uses multi-scale approaches from enzymes and mathematical modeling to whole-animal imaging and dissections to elucidate and treat biochemical and biomechanical mechanisms of pathological tissue remodeling.
