Laboratory for Multi-Scale Imaging

The Laboratory for Multiscale Imaging (LMSI) houses instrumentation that provides imaging capabilities to study both synthetic and biological materials from macroscopic to microscopic length scale.


The educational experience in all of our more than 150 graduate programs is designed to imbue graduates with the mindset, skills, and abilities needed to stay relevant in a rapidly-evolving technological and professional landscape. The following programs prepare graduates to develop and apply the latest technologies in the biomedical and healthcare fields.

We take advantage of collaborations to maximize our impact in this important field. Our researchers make a team effort, both across disciplines and schools here at Stevens and also by building new and existing collaborations with industry and medical and clinical partners.
