Molecular Imaging and Radiology (MIRA)

The research of MIRA involves the following research tracks: 

  1. Radiotracer development (small molecule based as well as protein and polymer based)
  2. Oncology (expertise with various subcutaneous and orthotopic animal models for breast, colorectal and lung cancer both under chemotherapeutic and radiotherapy treatment in normoxic and hypoxic conditions)
  3. Neurosciences (development and validation of innovative PET and MR Imaging Biomarkers for neurodegeneration)
  4. Engineering and modelling (image formation and image processing with a strong focus on PET quantification, dynamic imaging and pharmacokinetic modeling)
