The coming animal imaging seminar will be focusing on optical imaging.  We will have Dr. Jeff Peterson from R&D in PerkinElmer to talk about the new developments on optical imaging including animal models, instruments, and imaging probes.  Dr. Peterson is the Director of biology R&D in PerkinElmer and has been directly involved in the development of several novel imaging agents, such as NIR probes for inflammation, tumor angiogenesis, hypoxia, etc.

We will be also holding a user group discussion after the seminar.  Anyone who has interests in optical imaging or has questions regarding imaging instrument or agents are welcome to attend the discussion.
