Prize money of 60t € for the Elastography working group

The winner of this year’s Max Planck Humboldt Medal, Dr. Kandice Tanner, will use her prize money of 60,000 euros to contribute her findings to our Elastography working group at the Institute of Radiology and to initiate a new project. The aim is to further advance research into mechanical tumor properties and lay the foundation…


New DFG research group on MRE in cancer (FOR5628)

How do tumors and metastases develop? What makes them resistant to treatment? We want to investigate these questions with a new research group at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin using multifrequency magnetic resonance elastography (MRE). The project is being funded for four years by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

Article published: “Changes in Tissue Fluidity Predict Tumor Aggressiveness In Vivo” – congratulations to the authors!
