Jul 2007
The University of Houston and the Houston-based Methodist Hospital have partnered with Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in New York City to found the Institute for Biomedical Imaging Science. Goals of the institute include the creation of interdisciplinary programs in biomedical imaging sciences and joint training programs for scientists involved in basic and applied research. Among the technologies that will be covered at the facility are MRI, CAT scanning, molecular imaging and nanotechnology-based techniques. Research efforts will focus on improving and extending these technologies — as well as on developing new ones — through funding from research grants.


GLOSSARY
nanotechnology
The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
