uWAMIT brings together multidisciplinary UW faculty to focus current university research assets to:
  • Translate research results into commercial healthcare solutions
  • Design and synthesize novel molecular probes
  • Develop and validate imaging systems and protocols for molecular imaging
  • Initiate collaboration among chemists, biologists, physicists, engineers, and physicians
  • Develop ultrasound-assisted molecular therapies

Current uWAMITresearch is focused on three projects that integrate ultrasound with biomolecular tools.  These projects leverage our existing strenghts in ultrasound and molecular imaging, have a high potential for growth, form a strategic alliance between molecular ultrasound programs at the UW, and have clear potential paths to commercialization.
