About

The Biomedical Imaging and Biosensing programme from University of Liverpool builds on a long and prestigious history and remains a leading international centre for research into the fundamental principles of human physiology.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

In the post genomic era, physiology has acquired a new importance as a discipline which provides a valuable link between basic and translational research.  Within the Biomedical Imaging and Biosensing programme from University of Liverpool we have recognised expertise in all aspects of modern physiology ranging from the regulation of gene expression to cell, tissue and whole organism biology. Each focused area of expertise is related to a complementary area of clinical research and/or drug development. 

The Centre for Pre-clinical imaging provides expertise and infrastructure for non-invasive imaging in pre-clinical models. The technologies available for pre-clinical imaging currently at the Centre include high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), optical imaging, photo-acoustic imaging and ultrasound.

Novel applications and contrast mechanisms are constantly being developed that will aid the further development and refinement of regenerative medicine therapies, and facilitate areas such as developmental biology, neurobiology, physiology, pharmacology and cancer.  

Facilities

The research infrastructure of the Institute of Translational Medicine is designed to give researchers access to world class facilities in the best possible environment.

Our centres, facilities and resources give us the ability to drive biomedical research from patient samples to the laboratory bench and vice versa from newly generated drug compounds into clinical trials. They provide powerful, productive collaborations between experts within the University and organisations worldwide.

Programme Structure

Research areas specifically focus on: 
  • Monitoring organ structure and function in health and disease, including the kidney, liver, neuro/CNS, and imaging cancer
  • Tracking cells labelled with contrast agents such as Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide Nanoparticles (SPIONs), e.g. stem cell tracking
  • Application of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to assess electrical conductivity of body tissues
  • Developing strategies for evaluating the safety and efficacy of regenerative medicine therapies
  • Utility of diffusion weighted imaging and spectroscopy to assess response to gene therapy, e.g. for brain tumours and for detection of apoptotic cell death in vivo
  • Studying models of memory disorders, schizophrenia and autism.
