Our continuing vision for the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS) has been to bring molecular imaging technologies to basic science cancer researchers – to create an environment in which non-invasive imaging technologies that permit longitudinal studies of tumor initiation, progression, metastasis and response to therapy would be adopted by basic scientists studying cancer. Within the MIPS program, we continue to develop animal models of cancer in which molecular imaging adds new dimensions to experimental design and allows investigators to acquire time-dependent data that could not be obtained in any other way. The MIPS program is supported by numerous funding sources, including the National Institutes of Health, multiple foundations, and strong industry partnerships. Since the inception of MIPS (2003), we have followed a clearly defined roadmap toward translating our work into clinical use to benefit patients.
