The Center for Biomarkers in Imaging (CBI) at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology (HST) is a non-profit, academic organization dedicated to the identification, characterization and validation of image-related biomarkers, defined as anatomic, physiologic, biochemical, or molecular parameters associated with the presence and severity of specific disease states.
Built on extensive imaging experience, the Center for Biomarkers in Imaging will gather, catalog, and maintain an extensive, easily accessible database on biomarkers, to be shared with academia, government and industry. Through this process, CBI will promote the application of biomarkers as pre-clinical and clinical endpoints in the evaluation of new drugs and medical devices, ultimately resulting in more accurate, timely and transparent regulatory decisions.
Founded in April 2001, the Center is based within the Department of Radiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
