The Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS) program is a diverse training program bringing together more than thirteen Departments, predominantly from the Stanford Schools of Medicine and Engineering, in order to train the next generation of interdisciplinary leaders in molecular imaging. Oncologic molecular imaging is a rapidly growing area within molecular imaging which combines the disciplines of chemistry, cell/molecular biology, molecular pharmacology, physics, bioengineering, imaging sciences, and clinical medicine to advance cancer research, diagnosis and management.
The goals of SMIS are to train postdoctoral fellows through a diverse group of over 40 basic science and clinical faculty mentors representing 8 program areas, incorporating formal courses in molecular imaging, molecular pharmacology, cancer biology, cancer immunology, virology, and gene therapy, with a clinical component including hematology/oncology rounds.
