IUPUI Imaging Research Initiative Council

The IUPUI Imaging Research Initiative Council was formed to guide the successful realization of the Vision and Mission of the IUPUI Imaging Research Initiative

The Goals of the Council are:

  • To develop and implement a strategic plan that will enable IUPUI to become nationally and internationally recognized as a leading institution for imaging research and its applications.
  • To encourage and coordinate collaboration among IUPUI researchers from different disciplines in the development of new, innovative imaging technologies and the utilization of imaging resources in support of research needs.
  • To provide advice and guidance in the realization of highly competitive large grant proposals that will support and grow the IUPUI imaging efforts into major nationally and internationally recognized programs.
  • To determine strategic areas of strength and growth, available and needed resources, and strategic external partnerships to foster imaging research and its implementation.
