MOIN CC draws on scientists who have distinguished themselves with excellent research in their careers and who have thus been recipients of renowned research grants such as the Emmy Noether Programme.
In the Metabolic and Molecular MRI project, we’re pursuing the goal of developing hyperpolarised contrast agents. These should ultimately help with the earlier detection of diseases and a better selection of therapies. To do this, we’re using novel quantum-based methods based on parahydrogen.
Das Emmy-Noether-Programm der Dt. Forschungsgemeinschaft zielt darauf ab, exzellente Nachwuchswissenschaftler zu fördern.
In this project, we’re investigating new methods for using amino acids in the body as MRI contrast agents. Our part of the project is funded by the DFG. Our Russian partners (Prof. Igor Koptyug) are funded by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research.
In this project, Dr Pravdivtsev is working with others on developing new methods for using parahydrogen-induced polarisation. This is a joint project with Dr Kai Buckenmaier (MPI Tübingen), Dr Markus Plaumann (IBMI Magdeburg) and Dr Rainer Körber (PTB Berlin).
