Direct molecular imaging of proteins and nanoparticles

Molecular Imaging. In collaboration with Chuck Cunningham (Sunnybrook Hospital) we are investigating the possibility of using MRI to image nanoparticles (drug delivery systems), and proteins of interest in living systems. The methodology makes use of a simple non-immunogenic polymer, which we have synthesized as a 13C-enriched species. We have used this methodology to obtain preliminary images of labeled proteins and drug delivery systems, using MRI imaging systems in Toronto and at the National Magnet Lab in Gainsville.
