ESMI Mission Statement


On behalf of the ESMI Governing Board* it is with excitement to provide you with the updated mission statement of the ESMI. We very much hope that you could identify with the mission and that it is reflecting your conviction.

The ESMI Mission Statement:

The European Society for Molecular Imaging - ESMI represents the academic community developing, validating, and applying imaging technologies, biomarkers and probes in the life sciences. ESMI positions itself among existing organizations representing the basic sciences and the translation of this science into clinical applications in both, diagnostics and therapeutics.

The ESMI serves the basic imaging science community and clinical subspecialties focusing on experimental research using imaging modalities and stimulates interdisciplinary research

Central to the mission of ESMI is the transfer of knowledge from experimental imaging studies to the understanding of translational therapeutic strategies. Most importantly, ESMI provides educational support and programmes to scientists in order to promote the application of state-of-the-art experimental imaging techniques into the life sciences.

Members of our society come together and exchange their science at ESMI’s annual scientific European Molecular Imaging Meeting - EMIM. Further specific workshops such as TOPIM and TOPIM TECH are offered and dedicated study groups are installed to provide a forum for in-depth discussions of emerging imaging topics and technologies.

ESMI works on setting the roadmap for the future focus areas in molecular imaging by participating in the planning of research calls throughout Europe.
