At Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, our researchers use state-of-the-art, sophisticated technologies in myriad ways. Our seven research laboratories and 10 research support facilities run the gamut in imaging innovation — from our efforts in molecular imaging at the smallest scale to the large-scale management of complex imaging data.
But we’re not just a tech-oriented department. Translational research — sometimes referred to as bench-to-bedside or molecule-to-man — is our present and future. The laboratories and facilities that make up Mallinckrodt’s Division of Radiological Sciences promote collaborative, multidisciplinary investigation with researchers within and outside of Washington University in an effort to quickly bring the latest scientific findings to bear in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
Our dedication to improving the health of individuals sets us apart. In addition to our commitment to translational research, we have a new emphasis on precision medicine — getting away from group averages in assessing and treating specific diseases and instead directing therapy to each particular person.
We believe our unique blend of personal expertise, backed by the strength and history of our facilities and technology, uniquely positions Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology to move both research and human health forward.
