Center for Infection and Inflammation Imaging Research
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-II 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.
Imaging of Infectious Interest Group at the World Molecular Imaging Society
The World Molecular Imaging Society has formed an interest group focused on developing imaging for infectious diseases. This was highlighted at the annual meeting in 2014, with several sessions devoted entirely to infectious diseases. The upcoming meeting in 2015 will continue to focus on infectious diseases. Read more about this subgroup here.
The Third Annual Seminar on Molecular Imaging of Infectious Diseases: We organized a symposium on September 23, 2013 at the Owens Auditorium at Johns Hopkins University. This daylong seminar showcast the latest (preclinical and clinical) developments in the field of Infectious Diseases Imaging and brought together individuals from multiple scientific disciplines with the goal of promoting the emerging field of Molecular Imaging of Infection and Inflammation. It featured speakers with cross disciplinary expertise, and a lunch poster session. The seminar was attended by 127 people including researchers, clinicians, program officers and regulators from the various Universities, NIH, FDA, etc.
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.
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.
