The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering supports the development, improvement, and application of emerging biomedical technologies based in the physical and engineering sciences. This research agenda will dramatically advance the Nation's healthcare by improving the detection, management, understanding and ultimately, the prevention of disease.
Training a new cadre of interdisciplinary researchers is an important component of the Institute's mission. In an effort to draw bright, young, talented researchers into the activities of the Institute, NIBIB is developing new training programs in the biomedical imaging and bioengineering fields. The Institute's proactive approach is to develop creative and flexible opportunities that will fill critical gaps in the career continuum, while also enhancing the participation of underrepresented populations.
The Director of the Division of Interdisciplinary Training is Zeynep Erim, Ph.D.
