    Molecular Imaging is a rapidly expanding, interdisciplinary subject which focuses on quantitative imaging molecular events in living subjects by visualizing disease and by the engineering of new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. This course will introduce senior undergraduate/beginning graduate students to this field. We will cover how bio-molecular systems are designed, and how principles of transport/pharmacokinetics, thermodynamics, and kinetics govern the generation of an in vivo imaging signal. We will also cover the physics of instrumentation including (optical (fluorescence, bioluminescence, absorption, scattering), radionuclide, magnetic, acoustic, photoacoustic etc.), and review applications of these tools for understanding the molecular basis of diseases, developing new drugs, and monitoring new therapies.
