Dedicated Imaging Research Resources
Within our department, various clinical research projects are underway at all times. Many or our studies are funded by NIH, private foundations and institutional pilot grants. Our work has been published in leading journals and is frequently presented at national and international symposia. We also collaborate extensively with other departments in a multidisciplinary fashion.
Our department operates a broad portfolio of imaging research resources, augmented by imaging resources at Albert Einstein College of Medicine sites. We invite you to learn more about our dedicated imaging research laboratories:
Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center is a multimodal imaging resource located at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and internally connected to the Weiler Hospital. This core facility provides access to imaging technology and expertise for Einstein-Montefiore investigators.
Translational Neuroimaging Laboratory is housed within the Gruss MRRC facility. The TNL-Lipton Lab focuses on the use of imaging to characterize structural and functional brain features, which mediate the relationship of environmental exposure to neurobehavioral function. Major contexts for these investigations include traumatic brain injury, aging and development.
Dadachova Laboratory was established at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2000. The laboratory's main focus is in targeted radionuclide therapy of cancer and infectious diseases and radiation protection materials.
The MicroPET Facility—supported by The M. Donald Blaufox Laboratory for Molecular Imaging and NIH (1S10RR029545 "MicroPET/SPECT/CT Animal Imaging Device"), and associated with the Gruss MRRC—is designed for pre-clinical investigations using MicroPET (positron emission tomography), SPECT (single photon emission tomography) and CT (computed tomography) examination of small animals to phenotype animal models using a wide variety of radiotracers. The goal of the facility is to provide investigators with quantitative and high-impact preclinical images.
