Expanding the Scope of Infection and Inflammation Imaging: Past Lessons and Future Prospects


June 10th, 2021, 8:30 AM-4:00 PM EDT

Molecular imaging of infection and inflammation is a growing field. This symposium will bring together individuals from multiple scientific disciplines, with a common overarching goal of better understanding the basic biology and pathogenesis of infection and inflammation in living subjects, using advanced molecular imaging technologies. The symposium will focus on the potential of molecular imaging to provide earlier diagnosis of infectious pathologies thus improving patients' care and prognosis, as well as assess, non-invasively, the effectiveness of various therapies and preventative measures, such as vaccines. We will also discuss the potential use of immunoPET to target immune cell markers in infection and inflammation.

This meeting supports NIAID's and CIDI's mission by promoting the application of advanced imaging to improve the diagnostic capabilities of infection and inflammation worldwide. This symposium will help bring experts in the field of molecular imaging from all over the world to present their work and stimulate potential for new research opportunities.

This event is free and open to the public. Please use the following link on the day of the meeting:
