Abstract:

In the first year of this training grant, five faculty members from different departments at the Howard University were trained in molecular imaging with the faculty at the In Vivo Cellular Molecular Imaging Center at the Johns Hopkins University. Two research projects have started and progressed well. A Molecular Imaging Laboratory, a university core facility, has been established. Major optical imaging equipment, Xenogen IVIS 200, was acquired through this funding. The Molecular Imaging Lab is staffed with an imaging scientist, a molecular biologist, a pharmacologic chemist, and a research assistant. The lab has regular bi-weekly group meetings, a journal club, seminars, and workshops. The trainees have attended various seminars and a one-day retreat at JHU. The PI and the partnership leader have been coordinating the training
