...Diagnostic Imaging and Molecular Imaging Technologies?
Please contact Dr. Randy Hawkins (randy.hawkins@radiology.ucsf.edu)

We are seeking highly motivated medical students to work with us on multiple projects related to state-of-the-art imaging techniques. Our interest is to better understand the clinical utility of physiologic imaging modalities, such as positron emission tomography (PET), and to design and develop novel methods to image drug delivery, cell trafficking, and specific processes, including cancer.

The Job: Conduct research on any one of the following:

  • the clinical use of PET in oncology, neurology, or cardiology
  • the clinical use of dual-modality, functional/anatomical imaging techniques
  • the interface of surgery and clinical functional imaging
  • imaging drug delivery, cell-trafficking, or other molecules using small animal imaging systems and small animal models of stroke, cancer, and other diseases

The Rewards: Potential authorship on any publications, experience in data interpretation, possible benchtop lab experience (depending on the project and current needs), and the opportunity to work at the forefront of imaging science.

The Collaborators: Dr. Randall Hawkins M.D., Ph.D., Nuclear Medicine Program, Department of Radiology

This is an excellent opportunity for someone interested in the interface of technology and medicine. The student(s) will be encouraged to take on as large of a role on a project as they wish and there is a great potential to publish interesting and significant papers in this field.
