ESEG_Development of novel MRI-based contrast agents for advanced imaging of cellular function (2005–2006)

One of the major technological frontiers in modern neuroscience is designing molecular imaging platforms with the ability to monitor in real time the fate or actions of neurons in vivo. Our goal is to develop novel MRI molecular probes that will allow the monitoring of single cells over time and in living animals in order to determine their location phenotype and fate. We will then be in a position to apply this technology to accelerate the rate of basic discovery in cellular and molecular biology keeping Australia at the forefront of this fast moving field and to develop diagnostic applications
