PET/CT scan mouse animation 89Zr-labeled peptide-based nanofiber precursor

PET/CT of a cutting-edge, 89Zr-labeled peptide-based nanofiber precursor, prompting improved cancer drug delivery and retention, from the MI3 lab of Benedict Law, PhD.

The Molecular Imaging Innovations Institute (MI3) was established in 2013 as an interdisciplinary research group dedicated to the development of imaging probes and technologies that enable us to visualize disease and therapeutics at multi-scale levels. 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. Our research emphases are on translational medicine in oncology, cardiovascular diseases, neurologic and neuropsychiatric sciences, obesity research, and infectious diseases.

Our research team consists of Weill Cornell Medicine faculty, post-doctoral associates, visiting scholars and students, technicians, and graduate students across the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, and medicine. MI3 is at the forefront of multiple platform technologies including radiochemistry, nanotechnology, polymer and synthetic chemistry, optical imaging, medical physics, and antibody and cell engineering. MI3’s lab spaces are in the Belfer Research Building, which is at the heart of the partnering, tri-institutional campuses of Weill Cornell Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Rockefeller University.
