“Molecular imaging” is a new multidisciplinary field that enables the visualization of the cellular function and disease processes at molecular level in living organisms without perturbing them. The research outputs are applicable to diagnosis of diseases such as cancer, neurological and cardiovascular diseases. We are running a special educational course for molecular imaging in collaboration with National Institute of Radiological Science (NIRS), Chiba, Japan, and you can get a master’s degree and a doctoral degree for medical sciences through this course.
We have been running a variety of research projects such as development and clinical evaluation of new tracers, elucidation of the pathological mechanism of various neurological diseases and stress disorders, as well as new studies for health-promotion sciences, mainly using the facilities of the Cyclotron and Radioisotope Center (CYRIC) in Aobayama campus.
In addition, we have also started research and education on “scientific visualization”, covering all fields (imaging, computer graphics, illustration, etc.) associated with visual information in scientific activities.
We hope many people are interested in molecular imaging and scientific visualization. Let’s start learning it in Sendai, shall we?

「分子イメージング(Molecular imaging)」とは、「生きたままの状態で生体内の遺伝子やタンパク質などの分子の挙動を体外から観察する技術」を指します。分子イメージングは、医学、工学、医工学、薬学の新しい境界・複合領域です。方法論としては、ポジトロン断層法(PET)、核磁気共鳴画像(MRI)、光学イメージング(近赤外線分光計:NIRS)などの手法が用いられています。
