Finnish Biomedical Imaging Node is ready for Euro-BioImaging activities

Finnish Biomedical Imaging Node, which was recently accepted as part of Euro-BioImaging, is now fully operational and ready to accept new research projects through Euro-BioImaging Web Portal The Finnish Biomedical Imaging Node provides open access to the most important in vivo imaging technologies that are used in basic and clinical research. Highlights of the imaging modalities include preclinical and human PET imaging, magnetoencephalography, preclinical high-field MRI and optical intravital imaging. The key research focus areas cover cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, neuroscience, cancer and inflammation.

Turku BioImaging Research Manager Tiina Saanijoki was recently appointed as the Node Manager of the Finnish Biomedical Imaging Node. She operates in Turku PET Centre which is the coordinating site of the Finnish Biomedical Imaging Node.

“We are very excited to officially start Euro-BioImaging activities and hope that we get to launch several new Euro-BioImaging projects already this year. We warmly welcome all academic and industry projects and look forward to being inspired by fresh and challenging research questions the new Euro-BioImaging users will bring!”, says Saanijoki.

Finnish Biomedical Imaging Node is comprised of four partner units: Turku PET Centre (University of Turku, Åbo Akademi University, and Turku University Hospital); Kuopio Biomedical Imaging Unit (University of Eastern Finland and Kuopio University Hospital); NEUROIMAGING Research Infrastructure (Aalto University, Helsinki University Hospital, and University of Helsinki); and Helsinki In vivo Animal Imaging Platform (University of Helsinki).
