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.
The Stanford Cancer Imaging Training (SCIT) Program, funded by the National Cancer Institute, aims to train the next generation of researchers in the development and clinical application of advanced techniques for cancer imaging. Our coursework, rich mentored training opportunities, and outstanding resources, provide an active, vibrant program that attracts students nationwide. Graduates from our program are highly sought after, filling faculty and industry research positions internationally. This two-year Training Program accepts only US citizens or permanent residents and will help develop a US workforce to make progress in the battle against cancer.
