Nuclear Medicine: Our Research
The Nuclear Medicine research program is a broad one, but it is especially strong in introducing new radiotracer imaging methods to detect earliest neurochemical alterations in degenerative brain disorders.
Space dedicated for Nuclear Medicine research (18,000 square feet) is in the adjacent Kresge Research and Medical Science buildings, which house a complete cyclotron/radioassay chemistry laboratory plus laboratories for image analysis, image instrument development and small animal study. MicroPET, primate PET, and SPECT units provide for research animal imaging.
Research grants within the Division of Nuclear Medicine total about $6,000,000 annually.
