Medical Imaging Training at Duke University

Visionary Speaker Series

The Visionary Speaker Series sponsored by the Duke Medical Imaging Training Program brings leading imaging researchers to the Duke community,  providing trainees with an opportunity to  interact with intellectual leaders in the wider imaging community and to research topics at the forefront of different imaging modalities.  The speakers give a formal seminar, and, in addition, meet with the students in an informal setting over lunch to discuss both their research and their professional choices and career paths.
