SEMINAR: “Preclinical Molecular Imaging: An emerging opportunity”
The ACRF funded small animal imaging facility incorporating PET/CT, SPECT/CT and MRI will be the only lab of its kind in Australia and will provide researchers with powerful and unique new opportunities for preclinical research commencing in 2012.
Molecular imaging with small animal PET/CT, SPECT/CT and MRI offers enormous potential for gaining a greater understanding of biology, physiology and function in the in vivo setting. Some common applications include:
• Tumour characterisation such as metabolism, proliferation, hypoxia, vascularisation or apoptosis can be imaged at baseline and in response to therapy.
• Identify and non-invasively assess new targets.
• Studies of the bio-distribution of novel therapeutic agents including acquisition of quantitative multi-time point data.
If you would like to take advantage of this state-of-the-art facility then this seminar is a must.
By the end of the seminar you will have a greater appreciation of the powerful capabilities the new small animal imaging equipment can provide and meet our team of in house experts who will help guide us with study design and ideas for preclinical research.
