Molecular and cellular imaging

Molecular and cellular imaging allows for the visualization and quantification biological processes at cellular levels. This program integrates and enhances the existing expertise and strengths of our BME faculty members in head injury biomechanics, spine neurophysiology, orthopaedic trauma and inflammation, computational biomechanics, and neural tissue engineering. Our general interest focuses on the development of molecular probes that are able to monitor specific biological processes under physiological settings. We are combining synthetic and physical organic chemistry, radiochemistry, and molecular biology together with imaging techniques such as fluorescence microscopy and positron emission tomography (PET).
