Would you like to follow the metabolism of your tumor model in vivo non-invasively by MRI overtime? Would you like to determine a spatial metabolite profile of the tumor in vivo in order to identify specific zones of development, undergoing hypoxia…?
In addition to the anatomy of the tumor, MRI can help oncology many ways and enables critical functional assessments such as vascularization, metabolism and characterization of the tumor microenvironment.
In that effort thanks to the generous support of SOC AGORA, Loterie Romande and the Michel Tossizza Foundation, we are implementing a second 3 Tesla MRI system at IVIF Agora, which gives us much more flexibility to use this modality to the fullest.
We are pleased to invite Dr. Ruud van Heeswijk, senior lecturer at the Center for biomedical Imaging (CIBM), who is an expert on multispectral MRI. He worked on DNP hyperpolarization together with carbon-13 spectroscopy and he is now focusing on tissue characterization with Fluorine-19 MRI. A recent collaboration with the team of Prof. Johanna Joyce showed meaningful monitoring of tumor associated macrophages. https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/scitranslmed.abo2952
