Faculty and staff


Jamal Zweit, Ph.D.,D.Sc.Jamal Zweit, Ph.D., D.Sc. - Professor of Radiology and affiliate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Radiation Oncology and Molecular Pathology. Dr. Zweit has established CMI in 2008/2009 and has been the director since. Dr. Zweit is internationally recognized for his work in molecular imaging and molecular nanotechnology in cancer biology and therapeutics. His research interests include the development of hybrid molecular imaging and nanotechnology platforms to study cancer progression, diagnostics and the working of therapeutics. A major focus of his research is the integration of multi-modality molecular imaging technologies with nanoparticle-based hybrid probes and the development of endogenous molecular imaging to study tumorgenesis and cancer progression.
Sundaresan Gobalakrishnan, Ph.D.Sundaresan Gobalakrishnan, Ph.D. – Head of Multi-modality Imaging Laboratory and Scientist Manager of CMI. Dr. Gobalakrishnan  joined CMI in 2009 and with Dr. Zweit established the PET/SPECT/CT and Optical Imaging Laboratory, and more recently co-established the new MRI/PET preclinical imaging laboratory. His research focus is on the in vivo evaluation and validation of multi-modal imaging approaches, including studies of targeted hybrid probes.
