The NCCBI works with the ETH Domain on supporting doctoral thesis projects to do with biomedical imaging. As a result of four calls for projects, so far ten theses have been written, and 21 are still in progress. In February 2013, the students and their supervisors presented their research progress at the third annual NCCBI meeting. The NCCBI brings together various research groups inside and outside the ETH Domain. The newly created partnerships have to date resulted in 40 publications and various advanced biomedical imaging technologies. These range from new quantitative 3D tomographic microscopy techniques to novel image-processing methods for magnetic resonance imaging. Applications have also been developed relating to Alzheimer’s and chronic pain, among others.
