Sanjiv Sam Gambhir is a Professor of Radiology and Bioengineering at Stanford University. He is the Head of Nuclear Medicine and Director of the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS). He trained at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Medical Scientist Training Program, where he obtained both his M.D. and Ph.D. He completed his Medicine and Nuclear Medicine training at UCLA and was a Professor of Molecular Pharmacology, Vice-chair of Molecular & Medical Pharmacology and Director of the Crump Institute for Molecular Imaging before moving to Stanford University in 2003.

Dr. Gambhir has a translational laboratory that focuses on molecular imaging including new probe development for positron emission tomography (PET) and multimodality molecular imaging including the use of optical imaging. His laboratory has developed methods to image gene/cell therapy in living subjects including humans. He has developed many strategies for imaging basic cell/molecular events including signal transduction, gene expression, and cell trafficking. Dr. Gambhir also has extensive experience with clinical FDG PET and has developed many of the management algorithms for cancer patients including cost-effectiveness models.

Dr. Gambhir currently oversees the activities of over 20 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in his own lab and over 100 scientists/staff in the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford. He is funded by the National Institutes of Health and several Foundations. He recently received the 2006 Hounsfield Medal, 2004 gold medal award by the Society of Molecular Imaging, the 2004 distinguished scientist award by the Academy of Molecular Imaging, and the 2003 Holst Medal for his contributions to the field of molecular imaging. He is President of the Academy of Molecular Imaging (AMI) and associate editor of several journals.
