Molecular Imaging: A Tool for Studying Systems Biology in vivo

10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Molecular imaging may be defined as spatially localized and/or temporally resolved sensing of molecular and cellular processes in vivo. By integrating information obtained from molecular imaging and molecular analysis techniques such as functional genomics and proteomics in an iterative fashion, further understanding of systems biology can be developed. Knowledge gained from this type of investigation can be readily translated to clinical applications in the form of novel diagnostics, therapeutics, and personalized treatments.
