Medical Imaging Cluster (MIC)

  • The Medical Imaging Cluster (MIC) oversees the collaboration of several institutions and research bodies involved in imaging at the Medical University of Vienna, and represents these organisations in seven, theme-oriented focal areas of scientific nodes. The MIC focuses on cooperative agreements with other research clusters within the Medical University of Vienna and abroad.

  • The objective of the Medical Imaging Cluster is to effect a fundamental paradigm shift in access to translational research from the single cell to the individual.

  • New ways must be developed in order to diagnose disease earlier, determine its nature more effectively, and evaluate new therapeutic approaches.
  • The synthesis of anatomical, functional, and molecular information — provided by an extensive and innovative array of imaging methods — will play a key role in realising bench-to-bedside personalised medicine. 

  • A Steering Board is supervised by an international external Advisory Board.



Im Oktober 2022 wurden im Medical Imaging Cluster der MedUni Wien das Steering Board und der Sprecher des MIC neu gewählt.
