Wayne State University College of Engineering and the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute (KCI) are pleased to present the symposium "Frontiers in Molecular and Functional Imaging" on Friday, October 20, 2017 at the IBio Building. The symposium will include presentations by KCI's Molecular Imaging Program group members and other experts in the field of imaging.  The event also includes a student poster competition.  Top posters will be displayed in the IBio lobby and students will be available to discuss their work during the lunch hour. The final schedule can be viewed here. Presentations by:Matthew Allen, Ph.D., Wayne State University; Bruce Berkowitz, Ph.D., Inaugural FARVO; Paul Carson, Ph.D., University of Michigan; Vaibhav Diwadkar, Ph.D., Wayne State University; Neb Duric, Ph.D., Wayne State University and KCI, Juri Gelovani, M.D., Ph.D.,Wayne State University and KCI; Csaba Juhasz, M.D., Ph.D., Wayne State University; Roman Maev, Ph.D. DSc., Wayne State University; Mohammad Mehrmohammadi, Ph.D., Wayne State University; Otto Muzik, Ph.D., Wayne State University School of Medicine; Mohammadreza Nasiriavanaki, Ph.D., Wayne State University; Scott Peltier, Ph.D., University of Michigan; Erik M.

The vision of the TNP program at WSU is to inspire a new generation of biomedical investigators highly-trained in interdisciplinary science that focuses on improving the health and care of individuals affected by psychiatric or neurological disorders, or injuries in the nervous system through an understanding of disease mechanisms.

Our mission begins with a program that is inherently interdisciplinary with faculty mentors specialized in basic, translational and clinical neuroscience. Students from diverse undergraduate backgrounds are exposed to a comprehensive and integrated bio-behavioral didactic curriculum. This includes courses in basic cellular, molecular and systems neurobiology, behavior and cognition, and neuroimaging.


The program offers access to world-class neuroimaging facilities for both animal and human research, and highly-experienced scientists with expertise in brain disorders, diseases and injuries, pre-clinical animal research, transgenic and knockout models, substance abuse, neuropharmacological treatments, brain network and computational modeling, and brain development and aging.

The TNP program is fully committed in training basic and clinical neuroscientists who will be driving innovations that impact public health.
