Abstract:
Under the auspices of the Xiangshan Science Conferences (XSSC), a symposium was held from 18 to 20 December in Beijing to deal with the key S&T issues in molecular imaging and related application.

Xiangshan symposium addresses molecular imaging

Beijing, China | Posted on December 24th, 2008

The meeting was co-chaired by TIAN Jie from the CAS Institute of Automation, TANG Xiaowei from Zhejiang University, WANG Weiqi from Fudan University, BAI Jing from Tsinghua University, and BAO Shanglian from Peking University.

Molecular imaging is a newly emerging field of study that involves many academic disciplines, such as informatics, molecular biology, chemistry, physics, radiological medicine, nuclear medicine and clinics. The technology is able to obtain three-dimensional images about the physiological and pathological changes of an organism at the molecular level in an in-vivo, real-time, dynamic and no-invasive way. In addition, it is also expected to offer effective approaches for data acquisition, analysis and processing in research into specific functions of genomes, growth of organisms, disease development and drug efficacy assessment.

At present, molecular imaging has become an interdisciplinary "hot spot", among which radionuclide-based molecular imaging has been used for the human body and found primary applications in clinics. However, there still exist many science fundamentals to be solved. As a new research focus for the whole area, optical molecular imaging labeled with fluorescence in particular, is still in its fledgling development stage and needs strengthened efforts.

Molecular imaging will eventually provide new and revolutionary methods for life sciences and clinical medicine, according to experts. As the in-vivo studies of activities of genes, bio-macromolecules, and cells are a major research target for the 21st century life sciences, it will be beneficial for developing brand-new methods for the alert, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases, and is vital for upgrading people's health and living standards.

The participants of the XSSC symposium focused their discussions on such topics as studies of optical molecular imaging and application; radionuclide-based molecular imaging studies and application; multimodal molecular imaging and application; key issues in molecular probes; molecular diagnosis and its clinical application; important roles of molecular imaging in the development of anti-cancer drugs.

At the meeting, Prof. TIAN Jie and LIANG Wei from the CAS Institute of Automation delivered keynote roundup reports on multimodal diagnosis and its clinical application, and status and demands for the application of molecular imaging in life sciences, respectively.
