Molecular MRI team (Yannick Crémillieux)

The research activities of the team are focused on innovative methodological and instrumental developments for applications in the field of biomedical MRI :

  • Dynamic Nuclear Polarization techniques for highly sensitive in vivo MRI protocols : hyperpolarization of Carbon-13 labelled metabolites (pyruvate, lactate) and metabolic MRI/MRS studies
  • Methodological and instrumentation developments for molecular MRI : micro-coil for the quantification of brain metabolites, theranostics contrast agents for lung MRI

Permanent staff

  • Yannick Crémillieux (Senior Researcher CNRS)
  • Noël Pinaud (Technician UB)

Non permanent staff

  • Vanessa Zhendre (NMR engineer)
  • Silvia Rizzitelli (2015-2016) Postdoctoral position
  • Stefan Glöggler (2015) Postodoctoral position
