Molecular Imaging Agents

Surgery is the cornerstone of oncology treatment, and molecularly-targeted fluorescent imaging agents have the potential to guide surgical resection by highlighting the biological margins of the disease. However, development and testing of such molecular imaging agents has been lacking. Thayer School of Engineering and Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth together with LI-COR Biosciences and Affibody AB announce a new Academic/Industry [...]
