Sanjiv Sam Gambhir Early Professionals Forum

The Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS) and World Molecular Imaging Society (WMIS) proudly honor Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD and his dedication to mentorship of the next generation of molecular imaging scientists. Dr. Gambhir mentored more than 150 postdoctoral scholars and graduate students, and inspired countless others, throughout his career.

In a new international speaker series, professionals early in their career will highlight their latest work on select molecular imaging developments alongside senior investigators who will provide historical context of that field. It will be hosted once every two months by various institutions.
