Medres is led by Dr Wecker. Medres Medical Research GmbH has built up specialisation towards developing tools related to imaging devices. Their expertise has been influential in helping the MPI to cement its worldwide leading position for highly resolved in vivo MRI for investigation of cerebral lesions and for molecular MR imaging for cell tracking in the brain. The company started with hardware development for experimental high resolution MRI at field strength from 4,7 – 11,7 T (especially the cryodetector) and then expanded the spectrum of modalities to optical imaging, PET and CT.

 

General description Medres Medical Research GmbH has built up specialisation towards developing tools related to imaging devices.
Staff Expertise Dr Stefan Wecker has been actively involved in developing MRI and optical imaging tools, Their work will assist with tracking cells in the brain  using specially designed multimodality instruments, including electrophysiology set-ups, and assays for in-vivo monitoring of cell fate.
Key facilities and infrastructure

The company has expertise of in-vivo MRI and optical imaging as well as longstanding experience in cutting-edge imaging hardware. The company started with hardware development for experimental high resolution MRI and then expanded the spectrum of modalities to optical imaging, PET and CT. Their goal is to improve temporal and spatial resolution to allow in vivo tracking of implanted cells.
