In our laboratory, we develop molecular imaging probes for multi-modal imaging in order to enhance pathofunctional bioanalysis and novel diagnosis of diverse diseases by utilizing these various imaging systems. A multi-level in vivo imaging study on small animals through primates using these types of scanner is being conducted. This leads to the promotion of preclinical translational research for the clinical application of molecular biological findings that have been developed so far.
(1)Development of novel neural function imaging probe and its utilization
(2)Development of novel tumor imaging probe and its utilization
(3)Establishment of small animal imaging method using imaging equipment for various animals and its utilization
