These facilities will be integrated, along with chemistry labs dedicated to the development of new probes for molecular imaging and computing labs for advanced image analysis, in a new 42,000 square-foot building dedicated in 2006.
The institute will provide Vanderbilt a world-class research facility in all aspects of biomedical imaging, and provide an exemplary training environment for specialists as well as other research scientists in the use of imaging. The faculty and trainees within VUIIS are already engaged in numerous projects applying imaging methods in cancer biology, basic and clinical neurosciences, metabolic disorders and clinical trials.
This issue of Lens highlights some of the current areas of emphasis in imaging science at Vanderbilt and elsewhere.
