Johns Hopkins Researchers to Use Imaging to Detect Cancer in Cells
Researchers at Johns Hopkins will begin searching for new ways to detect cancers in the earliest stages within cells using advanced imaging techniques. The five-year initiative was made possible with more than $8 million in grants from the U.S. National Cancer Institute, according to an article at News-Medical.net. Researchers plan to use advanced imaging tools developed at Johns Hopkins In-Vivo Cellular and Molecular Imaging Center to look for ways to stop cancer cells before they spread. Targeting cancer at the cellular level would mark a significant breakthrough in the fight against cancer, according to researchers. More than 30 researchers are expected to be involved in the effort.
