From nanoscale to full organism, research aims to develop novel tools with enhanced capabilities to noninvasively visualize anatomical features and distribution of molecules. Optical microscopy and magnetic resonance-based imaging and spectroscopy are current strengths. Advances in both imaging hardware and software for image analysis with broad applications to many fundamental studies and diagnostic problems are being pursued. Cancer and infectious diseases are principal targets for diagnostic imaging systems. MD Anderson, Houston Methodist Research Institute, University of Texas Southwestern and numerous medical device companies are research partners.
