Molecular and Translational Imaging Workshop at CSI - Sept 14th, 2011

09/26/2011

The "Molecular and Translational Imaging Workshop: From Mouse to Man" was held on September 14th, 2011 and attracted several professionals in the fields of medicine, chemistry, molecular biology, imaging physics and computing. The program, sponsored by the Atlanta Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (ACTSI) featured keynote speaker Peter Choyke, M.D., Director of the Molecular Imaging Program at National Cancer Institute (NCI) at National Institute of Health (NIH), and several other presentations by imaging science faculty at Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology and Yerkes Primate Research Center.

The day long workshop also included practical hands-on demonstrations at the Center for Systems Imaging (CSI) on the following topics:
- Human whole body MRI (3T)
- High Resolution Research Tomograph (HRRT) PET scanner
- Multispectral in vivo fluorescence imaging
- MicroPET/CT
- Cyclotron and radiopharmacy
- Quantitative image analysis and computing

The workshop provided an excellent insight into the imaging resources and research at CSI to over 150 students, faculty and researchers. CSI thanks everyone who participated and made this event a huge success!
