Prof. Alex Dömling, Drug Design group of GRIP, together with co-workers of the UMCG (Profs. H. Nijmans and P. Elsinga) recently was awarded a grant of approx. €840.000 by the Dutch Cancer Foundation (KWF) research and implementation programme. The project is titled: Non-invasive whole-body imaging of immune checkpoints using radiolabeled small molecules as predictive biomarker for response to therapy.
In the project, small molecules will be developed for use as PET tracers and provide proof-of-concept for their use as a predictive biomarker. The multidisciplinary team of clinicians, chemists, nuclear medicine specialists and preclinical research staff involved in this project makes us uniquely suited to develop an imaging product with near-future clinical applications.
NWA Idea Generator project for Kottapalli to develop low-cost sensorized shoes for patients to monitor gait and avoid fall conditions through a biofeedback voice alert.
Ymkje Stienstra (UMCG), Joram Tarusaria and Ajay Kottapalli receive an NWA Idea Generator Grant .
Ten years ago, Sijbren Otto, Professor of Chemistry at the University of Groningen, discovered self-replicating molecules that spontaneously formed rings, which then organized into stacks. These growing stacks were able to divide by breaking in...
