Student Volunteers

The McLean Imaging Center offers a wide range of educational opportunities including fully developed post-graduate training stipends and NIH K-Awards. Nearly all of our staff members provide lectures and presentations at other institutions (e.g., Grand Rounds) as well as at local communities and schools. The goal of the Educational program is to provide the academic community and the public with the most up-to-date information on the advances in biomedical imaging technology and how it is used in strategies to detect, prevent and treat a wide range of medical conditions with a focus on metabolic, psychiatric and drug abuse disorders.

At the heart of our Educational Opportunities is a National Institute on Drug Abuse T32 Postdoctoral Training Program. Started in 2001 under the Direction of Dr. Scott Lukas, this program offers up to three years of formal training in the biomedical applications of imaging. In addition to didactic training, the program sponsors a monthly seminar series on Responsible Conduct in Research (Second Friday of the Month from 11:00-noon). The Center sponsors a bi-weekly seminar series (held on alternate Mondays from noon-1:00) that is held in the second floor Conference Room. Through the Office of the Chief Academic Officer, we have a formal CoOp program with Northeastern University and are developing a predoctoral program with Suffolk University. We also are a training site for MRI Technologist Training.
