Molecular Imaging, Inc. Enters Relationship with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to Expand Luciferase-reporter Cancer Cell Lines for Preclinical in vivo Imaging
Date:12/13/2011

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Dec. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Molecular Imaging, Inc. (Molecular Imaging), a specialty contract research organization providing multi-modality preclinical in vivo imaging services to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, today announced that it has entered into a licensing agreement with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to access a substantial number of luciferase-enabled cancer cell lines developed at Dana-Farber.  Access to these unique lines dramatically expands Molecular Imaging's ability to apply bioluminescent imaging technology to a broad array of cancer disease models, including expanded capability in various leukemias, multiple myeloma, triple-negative breast cancer, glioma and melanoma. 

Molecular Imaging, Inc. will be collaborating with Andrew Kung, MD, PhD and Scott Armstrong, MD, PhD to further develop and make available these, and other cell lines, to improve the quantification and predictive power of bioluminescent imaging in cancer. Dr. Kung is Director of the Lurie Family Imaging Center at Dana-Farber, is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Dana-Farber, Children's Hospital Boston and the Harvard Medical School. Dr. Armstrong is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Dana-Farber, Children's Hospital Boston and Harvard Medical School and is co-director of both the Cancer Program/Harvard Stem Cell Institute and Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center's Leukemia program. 

W. R. Leopold, PhD, VP, Research and Development, at Molecular Imaging expressed his enthusiasm with these agreements. "This licensing relationship gives Molecular Imaging access to over 100 additional luc-enabled cell lines, providing the ability to use imaging in a much broader array of cancer disease models, with greater confidence. Access to the knowledge and skills of Drs Kung and Armstrong only makes the opportunity to advance the science of imaging more compelling. We look forward to collaborati
