The NSERC Create Program in Medical Imaging Detector Technologies is a collaborative training program designed to consolidate medical imaging-related science and engineering research at Lakehead University, University of Waterloo and Univeristy of Saskatchewan into a unified and complete program covering Medical Imaging Techniques and Technologies - an area which is underrepresented in existing Medical Imaging programs in Canada. The program has to two primary objectives:
The first objective (short term) is to prepare “employer ready” trainees to
- be equipped with both technical and professional skills, and
- develop specific skills required by the Medical Detector industry through working with the Industrial Partners
The second objective (long-term) is to create the next generation of scientists and medical imaging researchers equipped with exceptional technical skills and an understanding of the path from an unmet patient need to the development of a commercial product.
