Cancer Imaging and Early Detection Program

About Cancer Imaging and Early Detection

The goal of the Cancer Imaging and Early Detection Program is to advance cancer research, early cancer detection and cancer management by carrying out novel research using multimodality anatomical and molecular imaging strategies and in vitrodiagnostics. This goal will be achieved through the development and application of multimodality imaging strategies to reveal the molecular basis of cancer, to develop multiparametric diagnostic tools and to advance the effective treatment for cancer.

The program is comprised of investigators from eight specialty areas: 

  • Imaging instrumentation/engineering 
  • Modeling/biostatistics; chemistry 
  • Molecular imaging 
  • In vitro diagnostics 
  • Cancer biology/proteomics 
  • Mouse models/small animal imaging applications in cancer therapy 
  • Clinical oncology
