Mission Statement

To apply the resources of innovative thinking, diligent effort, multidisciplinary collaboration, and financial stewardship in an environment of education and regulatory adherence to conduct research and development in molecular, functional, and anatomical imaging technology and image analysis, assuring pertinent imaging discovery that improves and advances medical diagnosis and treatment.


Welcome to Radiology Research

The UAB Department of Radiology is active in research endeavors on a number of fronts -clinical, translational, and basic science imaging research.  Our current active trial portfolio includes more than two dozen extramural grants and contracts, including those funded by NIH, DOD, the Komen Foundation, ACRIN, and multiple industry partners.  We work collaboratively with many investigators on campus through our Human Imaging Shared Facility, a core that supports clinical research, encompassing partnerships on more than 50 currently funded studies.  Our basic science research division, The Division of Advanced Medical Imaging, is home to five full-time research faculty members who provide expertise in pre-clinical, translational, and advanced clinical research applications.research_1

Many of the Radiology faculty conduct research in university-wide interdisciplinary research centers that span more than one academic school at UAB. The interdisciplinary culture at UAB presents the medical and scientific communities within the university an opportunity to achieve success with colleagues from other schools, departments, and disciplines who have comparable or complementary research interests that involve imaging science. Together with this approach, aims that mirror the NIH roadmap for imaging roadmap are actively pursued and accomplished.
