Mission Statement

    Small animal imaging is increasingly recognized as an important facet of preclinical and translational cancer research.  Perhaps most significant among the clear advantages of imaging experimental animals is that physiology, pathology and novel phenotypes can be understood in the most relevant milieu – in an intact, living system.  Less obvious is the fact that often the most significant leap forward that an already important biological study takes is when its results can be extended to the in vivo case – a necessary and often sufficient precondition for success in the clinic.  The Johns Hopkins Small Animal Imaging Resource Program (SAIRP) labors to provide that translational step, generating the confidence necessary to move new cancer therapies to patients.  Our ultimate goal is to move small animal imaging science forward – to the point where the incorporation of such imaging techniques becomes second nature in the daily practice of cancer researchers.
