Facilitating and developing advanced imaging techniques for preclinical and translation research. Combinations of imaging modalities can be applied to a single research question, or one experimental animal.
The Applied Molecular Imaging Erasmus (AMIE) facility AMIE at Erasmus MC is known for her achievements by applying physical grouping of complementary techniques and expertise. The facility has the unique advantage of having various technologies and expertise under one roof.
The saying 'a picture is worth a thousand words' is very true for our discipline. Our goal is to elucidate the biology of cancer and aging by developing advanced imaging techniques.
The Jacco van Rheenen research group at the Netherlands Cancer Institute has developed unique intravital microscopy techniques to visualize individual cells in real-time in whole bodies. This technique provides detailed information on the cellular behavior at single-cell level during both tissue homeostasis and tumor initiation and progression. This unique way of studying these processes has led to major breakthroughs in the fundamental understanding of cancer.
