The grant will help fund the UCLA Center for In Vivo Imaging in Cancer Biology, and it brings to $30 million the amount of financial support for the facility from the NCI.

UCLA received its first grant in 2001 to help develop molecular imaging technologies. The second grant was received in 2005 to continue work from the previous four years on the diagnosis and staging of cancer.
