Students in the Advanced Ocular Imaging Program are given the opportunity to develop strong research skills in a multidisciplinary environment.  Involved in every aspect of the program, students play a vital role in the ongoing development of innovative imaging research.

Our students come to us from a variety of programs, and with varied expertise, including medicine, cell biology, engineering, neuroscience, image processing and computer programming.  Medical students at Medical College of Wisconsin typically participate via the Medical Student Summer Research Program (MSSRP) or the Physician Scientist Pathway.  We also accept undergraduate students through both the Program for Undergraduate Research Experience (PURE) and Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) programs offered through the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, as well as high school students participating in the Research Opportunity for Academic Development in Science (ROADS) program. In addition, we have numerous other research opportunities for local students from the Milwaukee School of Engineering, UW Milwaukee, or Marquette University.

If you are interested in our program, please contact Joseph Carroll (414) 955-2052 or Alfredo Dubra (414) 955-8457 to discuss current research opportunities.  Get to know our current students on this page or view our graduates on our alumni page.
