Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Presents: Imaging the Future of Science
Virtual Presentation: Imagine a doctor being able to watch, in real time, as white blood cells attack cancer cells in a patient, or seeing exactly how the leukocytes replicate as they fight off the cancer. It would fundamentally change how they understand and treat disease. Today, the technologies that would enable this kind of understanding do not exist—nor do the academic systems that would incentivize creating these technologies. A new effort is underway to change that — by creating a global institute dedicated to developing novel imaging technology to visualize the biological underpinnings of health and disease. If we can image it, we can understand it. And if we can understand it, we can cure it.
