Our interdisciplinary team develops imaging methods allowing to visualize molecular processes inside organisms, tissues and cells. With the help of imaging we study vascular, inflammatory, infectious and neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer but also the development of blood and lymphatic vessels.
Through its Emmy Noether Programme, the DFG is funding medical chemist Dr. Anna Junker with 1.3 million euros. As a postdoc, she had obtained third-party funding in the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence. Now she is putting together her junior research group at the European Institute for Molecular Imaging.
Immunologists and imaging specialists at the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence have jointly developed a method enabling them to better evaluate and study the activity of inflammatory cells in mice. The study has been published in the “Theranostics” journal.
