Biomedical Imaging is fulfilling a fundamental dream of doctors to be able to peek into the human body without destroying what their looking at. Before imaging, you had to do surgery. Over the next 40 years, imaging is going to help unravel the mysteries of how our molecules, cells, tissues, and systems interact. It will be important for both medical applications as well as basic research and understanding biology. Guest speakers: Roderic I.
