The Crump Institute's Preclinical Imaging Technology Center advances state-of-the-art small animal imaging. It functions both as a shared preclinical imaging resource for UCLA researchers and as a hub for emerging imaging research and technology development. The same technologies and services are also available to the larger research community including other academic institutes and industry groups through contract work.
These innovative technologies have allowed our researchers to observe, measure and ultimately understand biological processes in vivo, assess animal models of health and disease, and monitor and determine efficacy of novel therapies.
The Imaging Center is part of the Crump Institute for Molecular Imaging and is supported by the expertise of its faculty members, world leaders in various imaging sciences.
The Imaging Center is located on the main campus of UCLA. It is housed in the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) in the Court of Sciences, a central location at the heart of UCLA's scientific community. It is appropriately surrounded by the David Geffen School of Medicine, Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Molecular Biology Institute, among many others. Our operations are fully supported by expert imaging faculty of the Crump Institute for Molecular Imaging, also based in CNSI.
