There have been remarkable recent innovations and vibrant advancements in biology and medicine fields spanning from deciphering molecular information using genomics and proteomics to treating patients with paradigm shifting immunotherapy and targeted therapy. Having physics background, I have devoted myself to apply fundamental knowledge and idea for changing conventional biological research and clinical practice. Molecular imaging has been my major area to be passionate. It is defined as characterization and measurement of targeted molecules and biological processes in living subjects. Advances in molecular imaging have come at a rapid pace over the past decade. There are major improvements in development of sophisticated imaging systems, identification of critical imaging targets, and design of better imaging probes. Such imaging technologies are now providing exciting new opportunities to study dynamic biological behaviours in small-animal models, guide novel therapy development, enhance surgical vision, better diagnose diseases, and monitor therapeutic response accurately. Here, I share several experiences to develop novel molecular imaging technologies such as a label-free metabolic imaging technique for a powerful tool of immunotherapy response monitoring, a real-time intraoperative detection method of peripheral nerves for image-guided cancer surgery, and artificial intelligence driven applications in optical and nuclear imaging. Of note, advantage of having physics background to contribute to this exciting field of molecular imaging will be emphasized. All together efforts to develop new technologies and solutions for biological and medical imaging will shed light on circumventing previous clinical failure and improving patient outcome thus reducing overall healthcare burden.
