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 reporter genes for noninvasive imaging, focusing on how they are using the NIS reporter gene technology to accelerate development of virus, gene and cellular therapies for clinical testing.
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 to $5,000 of direct costs for imaging studies performed in CAMI. For details, refer to this flyer.
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.
