This course is taught collaboratively by leaders in the field of medical imaging at the University of Sydney and the University of Queensland.
The Master of Molecular Imaging explores in depth the scientific principles and applications of the key molecular imaging technologies in life science research and biotechnology. It will appeal to talented graduates who wish to develop their skills in a range of advanced imaging methodologies and apply them to challenging problems in biomedicine and health. Molecular imaging is a form of biomedical imaging, which is rapidly growing in importance in the applied life sciences. The key technologies for imaging the molecular signatures of disease in humans and animal models are PET, SPECT and MRI. These technologies are continually evolving as scientists and engineers develop new approaches and new applications. This course gives graduates the opportunity to discover this rapidly evolving field and play an important role in its further development. It will prepare graduates to work in multi-disciplinary teams that advance these technologies beyond their current capabilities to meet the future challenges in biomedicine.
