IUPUI Imaging Research Symposium

Friday, October 3, 2014

IUPUI University Library, Lilly Auditorium

10:00am – 3:00pm

The objective of this Symposium is to bring together investigators from diverse scientific disciplines with image technology experts to explore potential collaborative research opportunities. This year’s event will include a presentation by Dr. Kamlesh Lulla, Chief Scientist for Earth Observations from NASA’s Johnson Space Center who will describe recent activities in remote imaging. In addition, several IUPUI investigators will present their imaging-related research activities. These include applications in neuroimaging in Alzheimer’s disease, 3D imaging of the human airway, live cell imaging, and molecular probe development for tumor imaging among other topics. A poster session will provide the opportunity for attendees to interact with several investigators who develop or utilize imaging technologies in their research. The target audience includes researchers within the IUPUI/IU/PU community as well as academic and industrial investigators within the greater Indiana research community.
