Focusing on the Future of Molecular Imaging

SNMMI's Center for Molecular Imaging Innovation and Translation is an organizational component within the SNMMI that is dedicated to all aspects of molecular imaging in the detection and management of disease. The primary focal areas of the Center are educational programs, professional and intersociety networking, and serving as a resource for development and implementation of SNMMI policy in this specialized area. The center is currently facilitating initiatives to bring molecular imaging discoveries from the lab to the patient and to advance "personalized" medicine. 

Vision:  

Molecular imaging and molecularly targeted therapy will be an integral part of the medical standard of care by providing specific information that will be used for diagnosis and to guide therapeutic decisions that improve health and well-being.

Mission:

To engage the molecular imaging community and leverage the SNMMI infrastructure to advance the adoption of emerging molecular imaging technologies and probes in preclinical and clinical applications.

Goals and Objectives

  • Ensure Nuclear Medicine Residency education contains sufficient MI content to make residents aware of and prepared for future molecular imaging clinical applications.
  • Develop educational resources for a “translational researcher”.  CMIIT will provide researchers with needed education and training on the “nuts and bolts” of translating and transitioning an agent or technique from pre-clinical research into the clinical practice (tracer development, equipment, funding).
  • Develop curriculum guidelines and resources for a molecular imaging scientist.
  • Public policies and regulations should facilitate the approval and adoption of new MI technologies.
  • Increase knowledge among members of the scientific community involved in biomedical research about the current value and future promise of molecular imaging, help cross fertilization to other disciplines, and make them aware of the power of molecular imaging and help researchers there get their advances and discoveries to clinic using in vivo imaging.
  • Diversify CMIIT’s membership.  CMIIT will represent a molecular imaging community that includes diversity in work role, modality and provide the appropriate resources for this diverse membership. 
  • Develop funding mechanisms for CMIIT projects.
  • Highlight and explore emerging technologies (such as nanoparticles) that may be novel, experimental, and possibly controversial.

 CMIIT President's Message

Kimberly A. Kelly 

Kimberly A. Kelly, PhD

CMIIT President

Welcome to the Center for Molecular Imaging, Innovation, and Translation (CMIIT). The primary mission of our center is to promote the translation of molecular imaging and therapeutics from bench to bedside and to aid in the dissemination to the community. Our members form a diverse community from fields including chemistry, biology, radiochemistry, engineering, physicians, and technologists. Together we strive to transform patient care and improve quality of life. It’s an exciting time to be involved in CMIIT! The success of Lutathera opens the door for future innovations in imaging and therapy. Check out the articles on Lutathera in the lead article and in the recurring feature – Tech Corner in the MI Gateway.
