Program Description:

Computational Imaging and Biopharmaceutical Sciences (CIBS) concentration

 

The Computational Imaging and Biopharmaceutical Sciences(CIBS) concentration within the MS in Clinical & Translational Science (see below) is designed for students wishing to specialize in computer generated image reconstruction for understanding visualization of normal and diseased organ function and accurate localization of tumors in organs. Emphasis is placed on understanding aspects of clinical research including drug development, biology of disease and functional imaging coupled with structural aspects obtained from computer generated image reconstruction to arrive at the final reconstructed 3D image. This program is a collaboration between the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and the Department of Computer Science at Rutgers University.

Developed to advance your career in Biomedical Imaging, the CIBS Track within the MCTS Program prepares you for a managerial and scientific role in the Clinical Trial and Biopharmaceutical space. Specifically, you will develop skills in the areas of:

Drug Development-Clinical Trial Design

  • Translational Science
  • Visualization
  • Computer Science
  • Medical Informatics
  • Machine Learning
  • Data Science

MS in Clinical & Translational Science

The MS in Clinical & Translational Science trains future team leaders in clinical and translational science research. The program consists of a combination of integrative didactic and hands-on educational experiences that will provide students with a global, yet detailed, perspective on the complex continuum of translating hypothesis-driven basic research findings into clinically useful and commercially viable tests or treatments.

CURRICULUM

The curriculum will consist of courses amounting to 30 credits within the program. Students can choose to finish in one year or extend up to a maximum of four years.
