The programme has been assembled on the true imaging strongholds of Turku and comprises a truly interdisciplinary array of prominent research groups and departments spanning both basic and medical researchers to share advanced imaging techniques in
- basic cell and molecular biology
- in disease characterization at the molecular level
- in patient diagnostics
As imaging is a practical science, the programme will include a large practical component, all of which are backed up with solid theoretical background knowledge.
The Biomedical Imaging programme is at the University of Turku a track in the larger ensemble of MSc programme in Biomedical Sciences which together provide the basic courses in transferable skills: languages, bioinformatics, and statistics. At Åbo Akademi University the Biomedical imaging program is part of the Department of Biosciences (Cell biology) at the Faculty of Science and Engineering.
