Molecular Imaging Center

The Molecular Imaging Center (CIM) at the University of Torino, directed by Silvio Aime, is a cross-disciplinary chemistry and life science lab. Our work at the CIM is to develop imaging probes that support preclinical research with focus in several life science areas. It was founded by a joined initiative of chemists, biologists and physicians approved by the Italian Ministry of University and Research in 2001.

Currently, the CIM is an international imaging science center equipped with state-of-the-art imaging instrumentations covering all the available imaging modalities as well as multimodality imaging.

Since 2016, it coordinates the activities of the Euro-BioImaging multi-sited "Multi-Modal Molecular Imaging Italian Node" (MMMI), which offers access to Molecular Imaging technologies and related services to national and trans-national reasearchers. Users can access our services at a discounted rate by applying at the Euro-BioImaging Web Access Portal. More info on the MMMI Node website.
