Cooperative projects

As MOIN CC, we are closely involved in the collaborative projects of the Section for Biomedical Imaging. For example, we support the Cluster of Excellence “Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation” (PMI 2167) and the Research Training Group “Materials for Brain” (GRK 2154) with our imaging services.


In our industrialised society, we’re facing new health challenges. Chronic inflammatory bowel diseases are a growing medical problem, for example. In the Try-IBD joint project, we’re investigating the potential of tryptophan metabolism as a new diagnostic tool.

PMI 2167

As part of the Cluster of Excellence “Precision Medicine for Chronic Inflammatory Diseases” (PMI), our scientists are working to improve the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases such as Crohn’s disease, psoriasis, diabetes or rheumatism.

TRR 287

As part of the TRR 287 collaborative project, our scientists are investigating gas flows in moving particle systems. Using magnetic resonance imaging, we’re making hyperpolarised xenon gas visible, thus contributing to the understanding of complex particle movements.

GRK 2154

The treatment of patients with chronic brain diseases is mainly carried out via the administration of drugs that have a systemic effect. One side effect of these treatments is that other organs are also exposed to these drugs. In GRK 2154, our scientists are researching systems that release drugs locally, where they are needed. The Research Training Group consists of researchers from a wide range of disciplines, such as materials sciences, pharmacy or radiology.

The ARTEMIS (artificial intelligence musculoskeletal disorders study) collaborative project led by Kiel is developing software for the early detection of vertebral fractures, as a result of osteoporosis, for example.
