Tracking gene and cell fate for therapeutic gain

Nat Mater. 2014 Feb;13(2):106-9. doi: 10.1038/nmat3868.


Parallel advances in molecular imaging modalities and in gene- and cell-based therapeutics have significantly advanced their respective fields. Here we discuss how the collaborative, preclinical intersection of these technologies will facilitate more informed and effective clinical translation of relevant therapies.
