The center uses imaging to support development of novel agents and other research tools used in the detection and treatment of diseases. Researchers apply the system to a wide variety of imaging techniques that combine optical and x-ray, as well as other modalities such as PET and SPECT isotopes.

The Frensley Center for Imaging Research is led by Dr. Michel E. Mawad, Chair of the Department of Radiology; and Dr. Wei Wang, who is the chemist responsible for design and synthesis of the agents. The Center emphasizes the combination of chemistry and biology research. The mission of the Frensley Center for Imaging Research is to serve the imaging research interests of the basic science and clinical faculty. It also focuses upon industrial collaboration with key device, drug, and imaging partners to bring imaging and therapy advances to the clinic and benefit patients.
