Their research in areas such as molecular genetic, radiology, space medicine, nuclear physic continues to shape practice and education worldwide in the era of peronalised medicine.

Yet there is much more. We strongly encourage and support diversity in both our facilities and student body. We continue to increase the financial aid available to students. Interprofessional training is alive and well on one of the world’s finest health sciences campuses, which includes schools of Allied medical science, Biomedical Engineering as well as a state-of-the-art genetic lab, Hybrid Imaging technology and the Clinical Translation Molecular Imaging Laboratory. We teach and conduct research in over a dozen countries, and attract experts and trainees for translational research and academia  from around the world, with a special emphasis on the South East Asea and the Middle East.

We also keep a keen eye on the clinical service and the leading frontier in the epitomizing the standard of care in molecular imaging. We recently expanded our facility with the use of best molecular imaging apparatus i.e MRI 3.0 Tesla, Ultrasound-MRI hybrid system, PET/MRI  and PET-CT with a savvy PACS and teleradiology systems. We have a highly engaged Advisory Board and alumni who provide input into program review and development, as well as a faculty that is at the forefront of our profession and the broader clinical and scientific community. All of this is critical to keeping a vibrant tradition alive at a time of dramatic change.
