– Program Overview
N-GENIUS is an NSERC Collaborative Research Training and Experience (CREATE) Program hosted at the University of Waterloo. It is an interdisciplinary training platform with an overall R&D aim to pioneer next-generation solutions for ultrasound imaging and therapeutics.
Devise new imaging algorithms with superior spatiotemporal resolution.
Translate ultrasound imaging advances towards cardiovascular diagnostics.
Apply AI and machine learning tools to develop next-generation ultrasound imaging techniques.
Integrate imaging and therapeutic potentials of ultrasound for drug delivery applications.
Integrate mathematical modeling to simulate complex phenomena.
Investigate wave-cell interactions of ultrasound.
The N-GENIUS Program provides a highly conducive environment for trainees to cultivate their professional credentials in next-generation ultrasonics R&D. Trainees will enjoy four major benefits:
- Opportunities to engage in multidisciplinary research in biomedical ultrasound.
- Gaining unique, hands-on R&D experience that span from first principles to applications.
- Participating in collaborations and exchanges between partnering labs.
- Developing professional skills needed to pursue an R&D career.
N-GENIUS offers, in addition to multidisciplinary research training, various career development activities such as bootcamps, summer schools, and communication workshops. Trainees will become career-ready experts in ultrasonics by the time they graduate.
