Novel Imaging Agents for Biomedical R&D and Translational Medicine

The Imaging Probe Development Center (IPDC) provides Intramural Research Program scientists with targeted imaging probes that help accelerate cell based assays, in vivo imaging studies, and translational research leading to better disease diagnosis. It comprises a core synthesis facility dedicated to the preparation of imaging probes, and a research component dedicated to the discovery of new imaging approaches and compositions.

Since IPDC's inception, our scientists have developed hundreds of probes to support advancement in imaging technologies.  We wish to express our gratitude to Ms. Barbara Brandys, at the NIH Library, for her support in the development and management of our probe database.  To view the scientific approaches to probes our scientists have developed, click on the image or title below.
