USC And CHLA Launch Imaging Lab For Translational Research
The lab combines dynamic equipment with an infrastructure of optical physicists, computer scientists, translational researchers and clinicians.
With the launch of the Translational Biomedical Imaging Lab (TBIL), investigators at USC and The Saban Research Institute of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles moved society closer to a day when diseases can be detected before symptoms appear.
TBIL is an interdisciplinary collaboration that combines dynamic equipment, including state-of-the-art microscopes for imaging living specimens and whole organs, with an infrastructure of optical physicists, computer scientists, translational researchers and clinicians.
Elizabeth Garrett, USC provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, underscored the importance of cross-campus collaborations such as TBIL at the launch event held at The Saban Institute on Nov. 13.
“Reaching across campuses, we continue to invest in the intellectual convergence of medicine, chemistry and engineering to improve clinical care for children in our community,” she said. “USC and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles are committed to developing world-class research facilities such as TBIL that provide flexibility for our faculty to collaborate as they address complex health problems.”
