Research

Dr. Weissleder is the Thrall Professor of Radiology and Professor of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School, Director of the Center for Systems Biology at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Attending Clinician (Interventional Radiology) at MGH, senior faculty in the HMS Department of Systems Biology, a member of the Harvard Cancer Center as well as the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI). Dr. Weissleder obtained his postdoctoral and residency training at MGH (1986-91) and has been on faculty at HMS since 1991. He has published over 600 publications in peer reviewed journals and has authored several textbooks. His work has been honored with numerous awards including the J. Taylor International Prize in Medicine, the Millenium Pharmaceuticals Innovator Award, the AUR Memorial Award, the ARRS President's Award, The Society for Molecular Imaging Lifetime Achievement Award, the Academy of Molecular Imaging 2006 Distinguished Basic Scientist Award among others. In 2009 he was elected member of the US National Academies Institute of Medicine. His lab has been a driving force in studying human biology, especially cancer and inflammatory diseases. He has developed systematic ways to explore disease biology using in vivo imaging and has been instrumental in translating several discoveries into new drugs.
