The Institute of Instrumentation for Molecular Imaging is a joint research center created in 2010 by the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Center for Environmental and Technological Energy Research (CIEMAT) The Vera Campus of the UPV.
Mixed Center of the UPV, the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Center for Energy, Environmental and Technological Research (CIEMAT), its priority activity is the research of new techniques of scientific instrumentation for image applications in the biomedical field. More specifically, his research focuses on the development of instruments for obtaining molecular images of the organism.
• Detectors for Molecular Imaging: The I3M Molecular Imaging Group is dedicated to the development of new detectors and algorithms for in vivo diagnosis using molecular imaging techniques for diseases in both humans and small laboratory animals. Main interest is the design and development of new equipment that efficiently are able to form images from the radiation emitted in the annihilation of the positron (Positron emission tomography, PET) and in the photons emitted both in tomography By single photon emission (SPECT) and in the 2D planar gamma image (gamma camera).
• The group of Grid, Cloud and Computing of High Performance: The Grid, Cloud and High Performance Computing (GRyCAP) group of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), created in 1986 by Professor Vicente Hernández García, focuses its activity on the development and application of Grid and Computing Technologies High Performance in different areas such as engineering, biomedicine, e-Government or scientific computing.
• The Digital Systems Design Area: The importance that the Digital Systems have, that instead was a little developed field in the DIE by that time. The creation of this line of research would bring, due to the union of human and technical resources, the obtaining of projects financed by industries of the Valencian Community and by public institutions, both autonomous and national.
