Neuro-Aging & Viro-Immunotherapy Vrije Universiteit Brussel


The ‘Neuro-Aging’ team focuses on glutamate transport, with emphasis on system xc - , in health and disease. We have ongoing projects on the role of system xc - or the cystine/glutamate antiporter in e.g. Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and (central effects of) (pancreatic) cancer. In most of these projects, neuroimmune communication is receiving increasing attention. Our overall hypothesis that inhibition of system xc - might be a ...

Department of Imaging & Pathology KU Leuven


The Department of Imaging & Pathology conducts bidirectional research in imaging and pathology, with an aim to translate these new insights into better diagnostic and therapeutic applications with a definite social and economical endpoint. Major areas of research are: Multimodal morphological, functional and molecular cardiac imaging and neuro-imaging - Cell tracking and stem cell imaging - Total body imaging in oncology - Radiotracer ...

Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging KU Leuven


- Blood cell labelling. - Evaluation of new scintigraphic exploration methods (single photon emission computerized tomography-SPECT). - Scintigraphic evaluation of the effect of fibrinolytic drugs on organ blood supply. - Organic synthesis of ligands for 99m-Tc complexes. - Methodology for radiolabelling, purification and analysis of radioactive drugs. - Tomographic evaluation of tracer distribution (PET, SPECT). - Medical Imaging: acquition, ...

Bio-Imaging lab University of Antwerp

The core business of the bio-Imaging lab is high resolution in vivo neuro imaging. Using imaging methods we are focusing on early detection and underlying mechanisms of neurodegeneration using mice and rat models for different neurodegenerative pathologies such as Parkinson-, Huntington- and Alzheimer's disease. Secondly the attention goes to neuronal plasticity including adult neurogenesis and stem cell research in which we focus on in-vivo ...

Medical Imaging Vrije Universiteit Brussel

The group Molecular Imaging (MIMA): 1. In Vivo Cellular and Molecular Imaging (ICMI) 2. Radiology (RADI) 3. Nuclear Medicine (NUGE)

Department of Veterinary medical imaging and small animal orthopaedics Ghent University

The specialization of Medical Imaging is available for diagnostic imaging in both companion animals and large pets in all its facets. Not only the classical techniques such as radiography (RX) and ultrasound, but also modern imaging, such as Computer Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), are part of the existing and controlled techniques. For specific cases there is also a Department of Nuclear Medicine (Scintigraphy or Botscan).

Imaging & Pathology, Kulak Kortrijk Campus KU Leuven


Our research is aimed at better understanding of the VWF/ADAMTS13/platelet axis in hemostatic, thrombotic and inflammatory processes. We use various in vivo models, combined with intravital microscopy to study molecular and cellular interactions. In particular, we focus on designing novel therapeutic strategies that interfere with von Willebrand factor function for treatment of thrombo-inflammatory disease.

Medical Imaging Vrije Universiteit Brussel

In the area of medical magnetic resonance (MR) imaging our research focuses on two main topics: diffusion imaging and susceptibility imaging. Diffusion imaging. Magnetic resonance images can be sensitized to the brownian motion (diffusion) of the water molecules in the biological tissue under study. The microscopic composition and structure of the tissues have a drastic effect on the brownian motion and, hence, on the diffusion weighted ...

Medical Imaging and Physical Sciences Vrije Universiteit Brussel

The department of 'Imaging and Physical Sciences' consists of the subunits Radiology and Clinical Imaging (RADI), 'Radiotherapy' (KANK), 'Nuclear Medicine' (NUGE). The main research topics for these three subunits are: For Radiology and Clinical Imaging: 1. Diffusion and perfusion magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and their application to the characterisation of healthy and pathologic tissues; 2. Susceptibility MR imaging of trabecular bone and ...

Translational Imaging Research Alliance Vrije Universiteit Brussel

The goal of translational research is to translate research results from fundamental research into new clinical applications. Translational research in the field of imaging can be divided into three topics: 1. Imaging equipment The first objective of the alliance is to make available the existing infrastructure for researchers of the two university communities and to establish a common strategy for future heavy investments. 2. Image ...
