The Center for Advanced Molecular Imaging (CAMI) is a part of the Chemistry of Life Processes Institute (CLP) at Northwestern University. The facility is housed in the Richard and Barbara Silverman Hall for Molecular Therapeutics and Diagnostics on the Evanston Campus. CAMI is the first core facility on the Evanston campus with facilities for in vivo imaging of small animals. It formally opened at partial capacity in May of 2010. Our goal is to make available a range of imaging modalities, beginning with MRI and whole body bioluminescence and fluorescence imaging, expanding in the near future to intravital microscopy, and eventually expanding to include nuclear imaging (PET/SPECT/CT). CAMI will additionally endeavor to provide cutting edge cellular imaging techniques not currently available in other facilities.
CAMI is offering pilot project funding for up to 10 projects per year during each of the next three years to researchers with nascent imaging projects that will benefit from CAMI expertise in imaging method development and refinement. Selected projects will be funded for a period of one year and up to $5,000 of direct costs for imaging studies performed in CAMI. For details, refer to this flyer.
