To help lead the next major wave in medical diagnosis and treatment, the University of Washington is planning a molecular imaging center to bring individualized, precision medicine to patients. The UW held a symposium on Feb. 16, bringing leading researchers to campus to join in discussions shaping the new center.
At the event, Dr. Chudler gave a presentation to the students, and the students participated in hands-on exhibits led by UW faculty, staff and students, including handling real brains. The event recognizes the national Brain Awareness Week to promote the public and personal benefits of brain research.
