Musculoskeletal Quantitative Imaging Research (MQIR)

Musculoskeletal Quantitative Imaging Research (MQIR) is an interdisciplinary research group in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. The group forms a cohesive center for faculty members, postdoctoral fellows, research staff, and medical and graduate students to pursue teaching and research in quantitative tissue characterization focused on the musculoskeletal system. Led by Professor Sharmila Majumdar, PhD (Director), and Thomas Link, MD, PhD (Clinical Director), MQIR aims to integrate research and build collaborations between basic scientists, clinical scientists, and physicians, establishing a strong resource for musculoskeletal imaging-based research at UCSF. Recognizing that collaborative bridges between departments and campuses are key to advancement in today's research climate, MQIR strengthens and nurtures partnership not only within the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, but also amongst the Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery, Medicine, and Bioengineering at UCSF and UC Berkeley.
