Astronomy and Space Science research is dedicated to understanding the nature and evolution of the universe in which we live.
Biomedical Imaging includes research into non-invasive analytical imaging modalities such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging and ultrasound.
Cultural Artifact and Document Imaging research is aimed at deciphering ancient documents, preserving cultural heritage, and enhancing art reproduction and distribution.
Detector Research involves the development of novel detector and sensor technologies.
Disaster Response research involves the development and application of sensing information systems, in combination with geographic information systems and predictive modeling to inform preparation for, and response to, natural and manmade disasters.
Nanoimaging & Materials determines methods to create nano-materials for biological imaging and imaging display technologies.
Optics involves applied optics research in the use of optics from the smallest scales to the largest
Printing research investigates the physical and optical interactions of substrates and inks and the printing devices that bring them together.
Remote Sensing focuses on imaging the earth's environment in the visible, near infrared, and thermal infrared spectral regions.
Vision research aims to further the understanding of high-level visual perception: how humans extract information from images and the environment, and how that information is used in decision-making and in guiding actions.

Faculty and staff in the Center for Imaging Science conduct research geared at transforming energy into information through imaging, pushing back the limits of human perception and advancing human knowledge and capability in a broad range of application areas.
