Farewell Dr. Christopher Contag
July 26, 2017
MIPS held a farewell party for Dr. Chris Contag on July 26 at the Stanford Faculty Club. Chris was the co-director of MIPS but has left MIPS and Stanford to become the inaugural director of the Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering and the chairperson of the new Department of Biomedical Engineering in the College of Engineering at Michigan State University.
Dr. Contag was co-director of the Molecular Imaging Program since its establishment in 2003, and previously a professor in the Departments of Pediatrics, Radiology, Bioengineering and Microbiology and Immunology at Stanford University. He also held the titles of Associate Chief of Neonatal and Developmental Medicine and Director of Stanford’s Center for Innovation in In Vivo Imaging.
Everyone at MIPS wished Chris all the best as he builds his new programs at MSU, and we look forward to keeping in touch and collaborating with his team at MSU.
Best of luck, Dr. Contag!
