Welcome to the Center for Infection and Inflammation Imaging Research. Non-invasive imaging has powerfully augmented the investigation of various disease processes in fields such as Oncology, Infectious Diseases and Inflammation. Spectacular advances in molecular imaging provide unparalleled opportunities for combined anatomic and functional imaging.
In conjunction with the Molecular Imaging Center, the Center for Infection and Inflammation Imaging Research core provides state-of-the art small animal imaging equipment, including PET, SPECT, CT and US, to support the wide range of scientific projects within the diverse research community of the Johns Hopkins University and beyond. Trained technologists assist investigators in the use of these facilities.
The Center is located within the Cancer Research Building Animal Facilities and run by faculty members from the Departments of Pediatrics, Medicine and Radiology. The Center also collaborates with the Center for Imaging Science for the development of advanced imaging tools Additional nuclear imaging instruments are also available at the Edward D. Miller Research Building.
Molecular Imaging of Infectious Diseases:
Current Status and Future Challenges
In conjunction with the Center for Infectious Disease Imaging (NIH), Integrated Research Facility (NIAID), we co-organized a one day symposium to showcast the latest developments in the field of Infectious Disease Imaging. The symposium was held on Friday, September 21, 2012 at the Natcher Conference Center in Bethesda, MD. It featured a dozen or so speakers with cross disciplinary expertise from all around the country, and a lunch poster session. The seminar was attended by ~140 people including researchers, clinicians, program officers and regulators from the various Universities, NIH, FDA, etc. Please click here to learn more about the symposium.
Nuts and Bolts of Imaging Infection & Inflammation: A daylong molecular imaging seminar showcast the latest developments in the field of imaging to detect and monitor infections. It was held on September 13, 2011 at Johns Hopkins University and featured a dozen or so speakers with cross disciplinary expertise, from Johns Hopkins University, and elsewhere. The seminar was attended by ~150 clinicians and scientists, from Hopkins and elsewhere. These include researchers, program officers and regulators from the NIH, FDA, etc.
