The UW Carbone Cancer Center (UWCCC) Translational Imaging Research Working Group (TIRWG) provides cancer-specific imaging expertise, consultation and support services for UWCCC clinical/translational investigators, laboratory-based researchers and sponsors. TIRWG, led by Robert Jeraj, PhD, has a full complement of experienced research faculty with specific expertise in all imaging modalities (CT, MRI, PET/CT, US, IR) who help investigators navigate the translational process to ensure imaging research activities are focused and connected and that complex research objectives are efficiently achieved. 


TIRWG also provides the operational infrastructure for the management of the Wisconsin Oncology Network of Imaging eXcellence (WONIX).  The goal of WONIX is to enhance the Wisconsin Oncology Network (WON) to be able to conduct advanced molecular imaging clinical trials throughout the state by utilizing TIRWG's consultation, coordination and imaging QA resources.
