Mass. Life Sciences Center grant expands Dana-Farber's cancer imaging research
Date:1/31/2012

to developing a world-class cancer imaging research program when it opened the Lurie Family Imaging Center on its Harbor Campus in South Boston in 2009. The Center provides researchers with a wide array of technologies, including a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner, a combined positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scanner, an advanced ultrasound imaging system, and multiple optical imagers for studies that use light-emitting proteins to track disease, with which to conduct pre-clinical studies.

The new Molecular Cancer Imaging Facility will complement and expand several of Dana-Farber's basic and clinical research enterprises that are focused on the development of targeted cancer therapies. This includes the Center for Biomedical Imaging in Oncology, which houses the Lurie Family Imaging Center, the Center for Novel Experimental Therapeutics (C-NExT), and Profile, one of the country's most extensive cancer genomics research projects, done in partnership with Brigham and Women's Hospital, which seeks to accelerate the development of personalized cancer treatments. Dana-Farber has committed to making the facility available for use by small businesses conducting related research in Massachusetts.

"I want to congratulate Dana-Farber for this amazing award and their continued efforts to accelerate the development of cancer treatments as well as thank them for selecting our Innovation District to expand their facilities and create more than 100 new jobs in the City of Boston," said Mayor Thomas M. Menino. "I also want to thank the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center for supporting Boston's life sciences cluster and enabling our institutions to continue to improve outcomes for patients."

"We are excited to support the construction of Dana-Farber's groundbreaking Molecular Cancer Imaging Facility in South Boston," said Susan Windham-Bannister, Ph.D., President & CEO of the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center. "This new fac
