At the July 15
MUSC-USC Imaging Retreat at Santee State Park, members from the
University of South Carolina, left side of table, and MUSC's Noam
Keren, graduate student, Neurosciences, Dr. Joseph Helpern, professor,
director of the Center for Biomedical Imaging, and others meet and
discuss issues. The meeting, which was attended by more than 40
faculty, postdoctoral fellows, staff and students, is part of an
initiative to nurture biomedical imaging research at both institutions.
The event was supported by state funds, which also included the
creation of the Centers of Economic Excellence (CoEE). Also in
attendance was SmartState (formerly CoEE) endowed chair USC's Dr.
Christopher Rorden. This event was a milestone for the SmartState
system, MUSC and USC as one of the first events sponsored by the newly
created Center for Biomedical Imaging at MUSC.
