Molecular and Translational Imaging Workshop

From Mouse to Man

Date: 09/14/2011

Time: 8:00am - 4:30pm

Location: Multiple locations (please see below)

The aim of this one-day workshop is to give a broad introduction to preclinical and translational molecular imaging techniques and their applications in biology and medicine. This workshop is designed for faculty, students and post-doctoral fellows, residents and resarchers within the scientific community of the Atlanta Clinical and Translational Science Institute (ACTSI), which includes Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Morehouse School of Medicine. Researchers and students from other universities are also welcome. Participation in this workshop is free of charge, but the number of seats will be limited.

Program

The workshop will feature a keynote presentation by Peter Choyke, M.D., Director of the Molecular Imaging Program at National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institute of Health (NIH). Lectures will also be given by faculty in imaging sciences at Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Yerkes National Primate Research Center. Several applications in molecular and translational imaging research will be discussed, such as multimodality imaging, cancer imaging, imaging of neurologic diseases, development of imaging contrast agents, and image-guided drug delivery and therapy.


In addition to the lectures, practical demonstrations on the different imaging devices will be given in the Center for Systems Imaging (CSI) at the Wesley Woods Health Center. Human whole-body MRI (3 Tesla), high-resolution human brain PET (HRRT), optical imaging (multispectral in vivo fluorescence imaging), combined microPET/microCT (Inveon), cyclotron/radiochemistry lab, and quantitative image analysis lab are housed at the CSI.
