Imaging in 2020 VIII: Understanding Complex Biology using Molecular Imaging

September 30 to October 4, 2012

Program Chairs:  
James Basilion and Anne Menkens
Conference Organizers: 
Thomas Meade and Daniel Sullivan

In Imaging in 2020: 2012, we will explore the use of molecular imaging to understand complex biology. New links between molecular imaging and systems biology will be developed. Understanding the biological systems at play in both normal and diseased physiology will play a critical role in the creation, monitoring and control of new, highly potent interventions.With new therapeutic technologies such as RNA interference, nanotherapeutics and stem cells entering the clinic, a more in depth understanding of underlying systems biology, that can only be attained through molecular imaging technology, is increasingly needed. Discussions will address imaging of complexity in single cells, imaging of system pharmacology, stem cells, imaging immunological systems, and the use of imaging and computational systems analysis.This year we will expand the diversity of the scientists that gather in Jackson Hole to include systems biologists and mathematicians that will benefit from applying imaging technologies to their specific disciplines.
