Imaging Workshop: NIS Reporter Gene Imaging of Gene, Virus and Cell Therapies | May 15, 2:00PM (5/10/2018) - Presented by Kah-Whye Peng, PhD, Chief Operations Officer of Imanis Life Sciences, on Tuesday, May 15th at 2:00PM in Silverman Hall 3510. Reporter gene imaging is used extensively in research but the resolution and sensitivity of cell detection could be improved. Dr. Peng will discuss recent efforts by Imanis to develop the next generation of […]
Pilot Project Funding for Imaging Studies (1/11/2018) - The Center for Advanced Molecular Imaging (CAMI) is offering pilot project funding for up to 10 projects/year during each of the next three years to researchers with nascent imaging projects that will benefit from CAMI expertise in imaging method development and refinement. Selected projects will be funded for a period of one year and up […]
Congratulations to collaborators Stupp, Hsu, and Hsu (6/21/2017) - on today’s publication of their manuscript “Sulfated glycopeptide nanostructures for multipotent protein activation” in Nature Nanotechnology. The study reports on a new nanomaterial for bone regeneration, and was highlighted in Northwestern News. Portions of the micro CT work and data analysis were performed in CAMI.
New “set it and forget it” MR Imaging rate (5/10/2017) - The Center for Advanced Molecular Imaging is pleased to introduce a new “set it and forget it” rate of $80/hour for MRI of samples that require long scans, but relatively little setup time. Users no longer need to schedule these samples late in the day to take advantage of after-hours rates. This will improve scheduling […]
CAMI researchers present placenta imaging data at ISMRM (4/30/2017) - Alex Waters and Chad Haney presented data on placenta imaging with MRI at the 25th annual International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. The work is part of an ongoing collaboration with Kelly Mayo (Molecular Biosciences), Michael Fritsch (Pathology), and Tom Meade (Chemistry). The work was well received, and has important implications for understanding ways […]
