Molecular Imaging Innovations Institute

The Molecular Imaging Innovations Institute (MI3), established in 2013, is committed to the further advancement of medical imaging technologies. MI3, an inter-disciplinary institute consisting of faculty, post doctoral associates and graduate students in physics, chemistry, biology and medicine, is dedicated to the development of imaging probes and technologies that enable us to visualize disease at the molecular level. Our experts in various platform technologies, such as: radiochemistry, nanotechnology, polymer, synthetic chemistry, optical imaging, medical physics, antibody, biology, engineering, and radiology, create innovative strategies to elucidate the biological mechanisms of health and disease. Our research emphases are in the area of translational medicine related to oncology, cardiovascular diseases, neurologic and neuropsychiatric sciences, obesity research, and infectious diseases. The developed approaches are valid in the identification of diagnostic markers, detection of early disease states, derivation of treatment planning paradigms, validation of therapeutic effect, the development of guidance systems for minimally-invasive interventional / surgical procedures and finally in the discovery of new drugs. MI3 is located in the new state of the art Belfer Research Building (BRB) in the heart of the tri-institutional campus (Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM), Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), and Rockefeller University) in New York City. The researchers at MI3 have unprecedented opportunities to collaborate with the scientists and clinicians at Weill Cornell Medicine, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and Rockefeller University. Our collaborative environment serves as a nexus for pre-clinical and clinical translational programs. Using our unique advanced research resources, MI3 is able to fuel clinical imaging with therapeutic treatment. MI3’s mission is to drive innovation of new diagnostics and therapies from bench to bedside, and to accelerate the development and transition of personalized medicine.
