Imaging

Our researchers have pioneered the use of imaging methods such as PET/CT, MRI, and live microscopy to observe and measure biological processes over time. By highlighting living cells or tissues with specific agents, we use these technologies to aid laboratory investigations into the root causes of cancer and to develop innovative approaches to improve diagnosis and treatment.
