Scientific research

The School of Medical Imaging has a Tianjin Key Laboratory of Functional Imaging. The research of the school mainly focuses on two fields: brain functional imaging and molecular imaging. The brain functional imaging research puts emphasis on studies of imaging genetics and clinical investigations of brain diseases, with the goal of understanding the neural mechanisms of individual differences in cognitive functions in human and developing new imaging methods for the diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases. The molecular imaging research puts emphasis on fabrication of specific molecular probes and its translational research.
