Franklin Aigbirhio, Professor of Molecular Imaging at the University of Cambridge, is known internationally for his pioneering work applying molecular imaging to advance our understanding of disease mechanisms and develop new treatments. His early ground-breaking work on Positron Emission Tomography imaging led to new radiochemical methods and studies which formed the foundations for whole body scanning which underpinned the Total Body PET scanner that is revolutionising biomedical imaging. Committed to promoting molecular imaging in medicine, he has taken national and international leadership roles and has shown exceptional leadership as a champion for minority groups, currently Chair of the Cambridge Black And Minority Ethnic network and providing leadership across the sector.
