Biomedical Instrumentation Development Scientific Interest Group
Across the NIH intramural community, researchers and engineers develop novel hardware and software solutions enabling cutting edge laboratory and clinical biomedical research. These researchers and engineers contribute to a wide variety of fields using research tools such as: MRI, PET, optical imaging, behavioral assays, animal studies, and clinical trials; just to name a few. Despite the diversity of applications, common threads exist in the technologies and methods used to develop novel systems, such as electronics development, embedded and desktop programming, mechanical design and fabrication, optical design and assembly, automation, and algorithm development.
The Biomedical Instrumentation Development SIG provides a forum for NIH IRP engineers and scientists developing custom biomedical instrumentation and related software solutions. Through meetings and a mailing list, the SIG facilitates collaborations and provides a mechanism for members to share expertise to solve emerging challenges in laboratory and clinical research applications. Meetings provide a venue for researchers to share their work and seek assistance in resolving problems, as well as provide tutorials on methods, equipment, and best practices.
