Innovating imaging, processing, and computation modeling




Lung Imaging at Iowa

The University of Iowa’s training program is preparing the next generation of clinician scientists and engineers to drive pulmonary research forward. By innovating imaging, image processing, and computational methods, we advance the technologies that help detect, understand, and treat diseases such as COPD, cystic fibrosis, and COVID-19.


The training program brings together 36+ experts in pulmonary research from the Carver College of Medicine, College of Engineering, and College of Public Health.

The University of Iowa's culture promotes collaboration over competition.  At Iowa, we believe great teams, not individuals, will find the answers to the biggest challenges.  Our trainees collaborate with faculty in the Iowa Institute for Biomedical Imaging (IIBI), which enjoys strong institutional support for biomedical imaging, image analysis, and translational medical research.  Through IIBI, students have the chance to gain hands-on experience with dedicated research scanners, including dual-energy CT, and 3T/7T MRI.

Inter-disciplinary and cross-college collaboration is an essential piece of the trainee experience at Iowa.

NIH-funded trainee support

Funding for PhD and postdoctoral fellows includes a stipend, health benefits, tuition coverage, & support for professional development opportunities.

Enrolled trainees are equipped to make important, ongoing contribution to lung imaging-based investigations.
