We Are CIHR Funded!
Along with the Rayner and Pratt groups, we will be developing new ways to prognose atherosclerosis with medical imaging, and implementing new therapeutics targetting the oxidative drivers of the disease.
We thank CIHR for the funding and are excited to initiate this multidisciplinary work targeting heart disease.
Our Field-Tunable MRI Has Arrived!
Through funding provided by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation and the Ontario Research Fund, the Molecular Medicine Lab has acquired a 0.1 to 3.0T tunable-field, cryogen-free MRI scanner from MR Solutions. This state-of-the-art instrumentation will enable our development of novel MRI contrast agents at clinically relevant fields.
