The new machine combines positron emission tomography (PET) and x-ray computed tomography (CT) to produce images more rapidly than existing scanners, opening new possibilities for clinical use and research. Developed in partnership with United Imaging Healthcare of Shanghai, the first scanner could be installed at UC Davis as early as Spring 2019. (Lisa Howard/UC Davis)



Evidence That Stem Cell Identity Is Induced, Not a Hardwired Property
