Magnetic Targeting and Imaging of Cancer Using MRI and Magnetic Nanoparticles

Allocated Projects

Our aim is to improve diagnostic and therapeutic pathways for patients with cancer, through the use of state-of-the-art imaging techniques and minimally-invasive treatments. We aim to develop a novel Magnetic Resonance Imaging system which allows us to guide, image and agitate magnetic nanoparticles using a preclinical, then clinical MRI system, to target and destroy tumour tissue. The project will develop an MRI theranostic, combining therapy and diagnosis in a single modaility, creating a completely new class of imaging/therapy.
