A facility for ex-vivo molecular imaging (2013–2014)
We request funding for digital autoradiography and high-throughput scanning of microsope slides to create
an integrated facility for ex vivo receptor imaging. The equipment will be located at key Brisbane and Sydney
laboratories of the National Imaging Facility and of a national brain mapping consortium. Images will be archived in web-based repositories and remote viewing capabilities will facilitate real-time collaboration between investigators in different parts of the country. The equipment allows data on receptor distribution to be incorporated into the next generation of probabilistic, electronically navigable brain atlases being created by the consortium and will also be used in the development and validation of novel radioligands.
