Cancer Imaging: Collaborations and Membership

The research program is well integrated with key research organizations and facilities, such as the Center for Gamma Ray Imaging (CGRI), the Biological Magnetic Resonance (BMR) facility, the UA/UMC MRI Partnership facility, and the Ligand Discovery Laboratory (LDL) in BIO5. The CIP has particularly strong ties to the Department of Radiology and the Radiology Research Division housed in the Radiology Research Laboratory. The CIP is also strongly connected to the Departments of PathologyCellular and Molecular MedicineRadiation Oncology, and Physiology in the College of Medicine, as well as to the Biomedical Engineering (BME) program and the College of Optical Sciences.

Through collaborative research and shared goals, the CIP is integrated with the other principal UACC scientific programs, which include the Cancer Biology Program, the Cancer Prevention and Control Program and the Therapeutic Development Program. Members of the CIP actively support the UACC Imaging Core Facility and utilize it and the other core facilities of the UACC to carry out their research in cancer imaging.
