Congratulations to Arthur F. Gmitro, PhD, the 2016 Founders Day lecturer at the UA College of Medicine! Dr. Gmitro will give the 2016 Founders Day lecture at noon, November 17, in Kiewit Auditorium. Founders Day is an occasion when we pause to honor the individuals whose scientific contributions allow the College of Medicine - Tucson to pursue its mission and fulfill its vision. The day is named in recognition of all those people, past and present, who have participated in the establishment and growth of the College.
Dr. Lars Furenlid and a team of collaborators have been awarded a grant from the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB). The project, titled ADAPTISPECT-C: A NEXT-GENERATION, ADAPTIVE BRAIN-IMAGING SPECT SYSTEM FOR DRUG DISCOVERY AND CLINICAL IMAGING, aims at leading the way in understanding the human brain by enabling the development of biomarkers with unprecedented specificity for mapping neuroreceptors and proteinopathies associated with disease and dementia.
