The Center for Advanced Molecular Imaging is an imaging facility of unprecedented scope. It provides researchers with access to all known imaging modalities as well as new imaging technologies developed within the center. The facility is focused on providing multi-modal analysis of biological systems from the single cell to the whole animal.

This Center occupies approximately 8,000 NSF of contiguous space on the first floor east of Silverman Hall. The Imaging Center will employ experts in the development of novel tools and instrumentation for imaging and manipulating molecular assemblies inside individual living cells, and in whole animals.

State of the art cellular and molecular imaging services and training include the following modalities:

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (7T and 9.4T)
  • Optical Imaging
  • Fluorescence and Bioluminescence Imaging- Now available!
  • Positron Emission Tomography (planned for future acquisition)
  • Computed Tomography (planned for future acquisition)
  • Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (planned for future acquisition)
  • Ultrasound Imaging (planned for future acquisition)
  • Endoscopy (under development)
