Measuring tissue rigidity could improve MS monitoring

Researchers from Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Max Delbrück Center have new findings on brain stiffness as a marker of neuroinflammation in multiple sclerosis to report. In this section, they answer questions about their research findings.

Dr. Kandice Tanner receives the Max Planck-Humboldt Medal 2023 for a project in MRE at Charité

BIOQIC welcomes Kandice Tanner for a sabbatical in the labs of Ingolf Sack at Charité Berlin. Tanner receives funds to pursue a translational project in cancer biophysics using novel MR elastography technology developed at Charité. Tanner is a physicist and Senior Investigator at the Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of…

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!

Introductory courses and BIOQIC Day 2023

The first PhD students of the third and last BIOQIC cohort have started.Their introductory courses are scheduled for the week of July 3-7. Like previous times, the PhD students will learn about the basics of imaging and the methods used in our graduate program. Our annual BIOQIC day(s) will be held this year together with…
