Medical and Molecular Imaging

The graduate program Medical and Molecular Imaging is a program under the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences at University of Copenhagen.

Head of programme 

Professor Andreas Kjær.

About the programme

It is an interdisciplinary graduate program that aims to bring together scientists and physicians who share a common interest in developing and using state-of-the-art imaging technology and developing molecular imaging assays for in vivo studies of biological systems.

The goal is to educate PhD students in the basic concepts, the development and application of a range of quantitative and qualitative technologies for medical and molecular imaging. The modalities of interest include positron emission tomography (PET), single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) and optical imaging.

The program is designed for PhD students with an undergraduate degree in medicine, engineering, chemistry, physics, biochemistry, biology, human biology, or other related sciences.

After the graduation, the PhD student will:

  • Possess the expertise and knowledge to assist in advancement of the medical and molecular imaging sciences.
  • Have expertise in multiple areas of imaging and be ready to contribute to the growth and development of this specialty.
  • Will have gained applicable comprehension of multiple molecular imaging modalities.
  • Have the necessary scientific knowledge and tools to become an independent and significant researcher within the field.
