Project Description

The Magnetic Imaging Group (686.08) will be exploring new fabrication protocols for creating smart contrast agents. They will explore potentially scalable, bottom up fabrication protocols with the aim of mass-production of MR addressable contrastagents and sensors. In addition, they will characterize the sensors both structurally and magnetically. Structural characterization will use optical and electron microscopy. Magnetic characterization will be performed using magnetometry and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
