Multiscale Functional and Molecular Imaging Group
Principal Investigator: Prof. Dr. Daniel Razansky
We work at the interface of engineering, biology and medicine to devise novel tools for high performance functional and molecular imaging. The focus is on tools that can broadly impact pre-clinical research and clinical practice by delivering information presently not attainable with existing state-of-the-art imaging modalities. We contribute to the creation of these new technologies in several diverse ways, from the establishment of solid theoretical background, inverse methods, and instrumentation to the development of in-vivo imaging methodologies and contrast enhancement approaches. We are also actively engaged in clinical trials involving the newly-developed imaging technology. Examples of projects include development of volumetric real-time tomography systems for pre-clinical molecular imaging, ultrafast microscopy for large-scale recording of deep brain activity, handheld clinical diagnostics systems.
