Divisional Focus

The Translational Imaging Research (TIR) division comprises imaging experts who are dedicated to translation of biomedical imaging technology into clinical and research programs that advance the St. Jude mission.  The TIR faculty have diverse expertise and interests, and focus on  innovation in the acquisition, processing, and modeling of biomedical images to capture critical information about the structure and function of biological systems.  

TIR faculty and staff conduct collaborative research with investigators from nearly every major institutional and cancer center program to address major challenges in diagnosis (biology, staging), treatment (response, toxicity), and long-term survival (late effects, remediation) of most St. Jude patients.  The division also has significant responsibilities to support clinical and small animal imaging, including safety, technology and physics, image and signal analysis, informatics, and clinical functional neuroimaging.
