UCLA Medical Imaging Informatics (MII) in an interdisciplinary research group, with active programs in biomedical and imaging informatics. Our research has a longstanding history of support through the NIH and other government agencies, such as the National Science Foundation (NSF). Our present portfolio of NIH funding includes a range of projects from the National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), National Cancer Institute (NCI), and National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB). We lead several efforts, including the new Los Angeles PRISMS Center, a U54 developing novel mobile health platforms; and are key participants of the NSF-funded Center for Domain-Specific Computing the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Centers-Coordination Center. MII is also home to two NIH-funded graduate T32 training programs in informatics and big data science. More information about out research areas can be found here.
