Biology & Applied Physics

In 1913, GE Research Physicist and Engineer, William Coolidge, filed a patent on the Coolidge Tube, a specialized vacuum tube that produced x-rays which were so well controlled and stable that his tube design would go on to revolutionize the field of radiology. Since then, we have many similar examples where our researchers have invented new technologies and solutions that have provided deep insights about health and disease at multiple scales, inside and outside the body.

Fast forward 105 years, and we continue to build on his and others' research legacies. Today, our expertise spans MRI, CT, ultrasound, contrast agents, genomic tools, cell therapy industrialization, industrial biology, single cell analysis and forensics. Our synergies with experts across the research center extend this further into data analytics, visualization and software, bringing value and meaning to the technologies we develop. To ensure rigor and relevance, we work collaboratively with academic collaborators and clinical centers of excellence across the US and globally to first understand, and then translate, their biomedical needs to early technology prototypes, and ultimately application testing. We extend our imaging and analytic expertise outside of healthcare applications to other novel industrial applications including aviation, inspection and additive manufacturing. Simply put, we provide the brains of biomedical research to get to the heart of outcomes that matter.
