In summer 2007, the college of engineering at Old Dominion University (ODU) established the Medical Imaging, Diagnosis and Analysis (MIDA) laboratory bringing together established and new faculty with medical focus areas.
Old Dominion University's Applied Research Center consists of an interdisciplinary team of researchers working on scientific and technological problems in the areas of thin films, laser and plasma applications, materials technology, and the emerging fields of nanotechnology, biomedical engineering, sensor science and technology, and MEMS
The Research Center for Bioelectrics strives to increase scientific knowledge of how intense, pulsed electromagnetic fields and cold ionized gases interact with biological systems.
The Plasma Engineering & Medicine Institute (PEMI) is a research facility focused on conducting fundamental and applied investigations of low temperature plasmas and their applications in biology and medicine. It offers a state-of-the-art facility and a vibrant academic environment where faculty, graduate and undergraduate students engage together in advanced research encompassing fundamental and applied research aspects in the field of plasma science and its applications.
The mission of this institute is to develop novel processing methods for growth of thin film semiconductor alloys (primarily of I-III-VI, II-VI and III-VI) for photovoltaic (PV) applications, advancing the state-of-the-art technologies utilized by researchers and practicing engineers in industry.
