The Project

We aim to improve the resolution and accuracy of molecular imaging at different physiological sites and to exploit nanotechnology for specific diagnosis and theranostic applications.


The Big Questions

  • Can we monitor pathophysiological changes non-invasively by combining molecular imaging with bioresponsive nanoparticles?
  • Can we exploit nanotechnology to increase the signal-tonoise ratio of existing molecular imaging probes?
  • Can we develop novel tools for multimodality imaging by combining different imaging probes in a single molecular imaging agent?
