CenTrIS The CENTRIS education plan integrates research in imaging science and technology with educational components at 2-year colleges and 4-year universities, as well as graduate, and post-doctoral levels. The essential framework is a tightly knit scientific peer network of students mentored by Center faculty and interfacing with a strong global mentoring infrastructure. In the context of this framework, the
educational plan integrates thematic research ideas and content into student learning with 3 innovative initiatives:
A. Imaging Design Innovation Network (CENTRIS NETWORK)
B. Gateway to STEM Opportunities (CENTRIS GATEWAY)
C. Global Career Development (CENTRIS GLOBAL)
The result will produce a globally aware, highly skilled, scientific and technological workforce trained in the imaging sciences and drawn from diverse cross sections of society. We anticipate that imaging will serve as an effective educational tool for STEM engagement both due to its universal appeal and its interdisciplinary nature.
