Special Symposium

Imaging, a critically important tool in life sciences is benefiting from the advances in the development of nano scale particles and systems that improve and extend the capabilities of imaging techniques. These include novel contrast agents, quantum dot markers, engineered ligands, and smart particles that enable imaging down to the cellular, and molecular scales with higher selectivity and signals that previously possible.

Molecular imaging is a rapidly emerging biomedical research discipline that may be defined as the visual representation, characterization, and quantification of biological processes at the cellular and subcellular levels within intact living organisms.

We invite submissions in each of these areas and related topics. A sample listing of pertinent topics is listed below. This is by no means an exclusive list, but aims to give a general overview of this diverse symposium topic.
