Congratulations to MRI user Kirsten Viola

on the publication of her manuscript “Towards non-invasive diagnostic imaging of early-stage Alzheimer’s disease” in Nature Nanotechnology. As part of a collaboration between Prof. Bill Klein and Prof. Vinayak Dravid’s research groups, Kirsten used CAMI’s MRI systems to image iron magnetic nanostructures targeted to amyloid beta-oligomers, which may represent an earlier biomarker of Alzheimer’s disease than the more widely known amyloid plaques.
