The Center for In Vivo Imaging and Therapeutics (CIVIT) acts to combine state-of-the-art imaging technologies, preclinical model development and advanced technical expertise to support investigator-led research efforts. Imaging support ranges from high-throughput bio-luminescence imaging, high-frequency sonography and multiphoton intravital microscopy to high field MRI and µPET-CT. In addition to providing opportunities for detailed observations of biological processes in preclinical models, these modalities are strongly amenable to determining therapeutic response in a translational setting. Playing a pivotal role in our strategic initiative toward identification of new targets and translation of novel therapeutic approaches, CIVIT seeks to identify and recruit outstanding individuals to meet the research goals of our faculty.
