Grant Non-Invasive Chemistry Imaging in the whole human body(NICI)

MR Coils participates in a granted project called NICI (Non-Invasive Chemistry Imaging in the whole human body).

The NICI project’s ambition is to lay the foundations of a new area of research: the study of human biology using non-invasive chemistry imaging. For this, NICI aims to unite two areas of research: metabolomics and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Metabolomics studies body functions through the measurement of metabolites; MRI, is able to provide 3D images of the body. By advancing MRI so that it can detect metabolic biomarkers and by discovering powerful new MRI visible biomarkers, a non-invasive technology can be developed for dynamically mapping biochemical processes in the whole human body.

Our Partners:                     Norges Teknisk-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet NTNU, The Chancellor Masters and Scholars of the University of Cambridge, Academisch Medisch Centrum University of Amsterdam, Imago 7 Fondazione di Ricerca Onlus, General Electric Deutschland Holding GMBH, Philips Medical Systems Nederland BV and Siemens Healthcare Limited.

Duration:                    36 months

Start:                           June 1st 2018
