Cancer Molecular and Functional Imaging

The goal of the Cancer Molecular and Functional Imaging Program is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancer by using advanced imaging technology and tools to help our researchers and clinicians see cancer cells and how they respond to treatments.  Researchers are focused on cancer biology and discovery, imaging probe development, biomarkers and other methods to evaluate therapies.  As discoveries in cancer genetics and epigenetics have revealed new targets for treatment, molecular and functional imaging is accelerating and improving drug development by helping to determine if new drug therapies are hitting the desired target and causing the intended effects to tumors. Scientists in this program work collaboratively with investigators in each of the Kimmel Cancer Center’s disease-specific research programs to help speed discovery for all types of cancers.  The Cancer Molecular and Functional Imaging Program leaders are Zaver Bhujwalla, Ph.D. and Martin Pomper, M.D., Ph.D.
