Advancing Preclinical and Translational Science in Molecular and Orthopedic Research at UCLA


  • Preclinical imaging enables the measurement and assessment of biological processes in vivo utilizing technologies such as optical and PET platforms to assay cells, tissues, and living organisms. In this webinar, Drs. Jason Lee and Nicholas Bernthal shared insights on how a successful imaging program at UCLA has been instrumental in generating novel models of disease and conducting cutting edge research. Our speakers highlighted preclinical imaging technologies in biomedical and translational studies and their collaborative work with Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland on the development of a preclinical model of spinal surgery where spine implant infections can be monitored non-invasively and longitudinally using in vivo imaging.
