BRAINPATH

Molecular Imaging of Brain Pathophysiology

BRAINPATH aims to build upon current developments in molecular imaging by creating an academic-industrial training and mobility network as the next stage of evolution of imaging technology. Molecular /in vivo/ imaging is a fertile area which harbours a mix of expertise, state-of-art equipment and many different disciplines and inter-sector work environments. Our aim is to train up a new generation of medical imaging scientists so that, within the next 10-15 years, they can bring optical brain imaging to the clinic. The goal is to better understand brain diseases and develop new preclinical treatment strategies so that brain optical imaging will one day be used clinically. It is hoped that in the future it will be implemented as the fourth clinical modality in conjunction with the three already established clinical imaging techniques of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), x-ray computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET).

Final Conference of Glowbrain – Stem Cell and Biomaterial Applications for Brain Repair

Glowbrain is an EU FP7 project which is related to Brainpath. During their final conference, there was a specific session about Brainpath in which a couple of the Brainpath members could show their work. The conference was a success, for more information click here.
