The CCIR is a centralized, hospital-based research facility that provides access to advanced clinical imaging technologies and resources needed to execute clinical research studies. The primary mission of the CCIR is to promote and support WUSM investigators and their collaborators doing fundamental and cutting-edge healthcare research at the university.

Core Description

The vision and goals of the CCIR are:

  • To establish a preeminent and innovative clinical imaging research environment that links basic science and discovery efforts to clinical practice
  • To consistently improve upon our environment to further develop and support leading-edge bioimaging technologies and educational paradigms that lead to expansion of imaging sciences and improvements in health care.

The CCIR provides investigators with space to conduct final clinical tests of an imaging application nearly ready for patient use or to achieve a better understanding of a disease or its treatment at a basic, biological level by radiological examination of its fundamental processes or biomarkers.


Service available to All entities, including for-profit organizations.
