(September 7, 2023) WMIC Workshop: Unveiling the Spectrum of Imaging Modalities in Preclinical Research

Join us for an enlightening discussion presented by Scintica Instrumentation, where we will explore the diverse applications in preclinical imaging research, with a special emphasis on theranostics. Delving into Scintica Instrumentation’s comprehensive product portfolio, we will explore the applications in bioluminescence, NIR-I and NIR-II imaging, PET, SPECT, Photoacoustics, and intravital microscopy.

Our journey will begin by exploring whole-body imaging techniques such as bioluminescence, NIR-I and NIR-II fluorescence imaging, continuing on to PET, SPECT, and photoacoustics, which all enable non-invasive monitoring of disease progression and treatment responses at the molecular level. We will uncover how these modalities play a vital role in both disease detection and treatment, and further into the various theranostic approaches which are the focus of many preclinical researchers these days.

Diving further into the microscopic realm, we will unveil the power of intravital microscopy, revealing intricate cellular and molecular processes within live organisms. More and more these days researchers are approaching their biological questions with a multi-modal approach – that is multiple imaging modalities, for example, but also multi-level examination of the biological pathways involved. Many researchers understand the importance of both whole body, organ level, and microscopic examinations to fully explore disease mechanisms, diagnostics, and therapeutic response.

Join us in this captivating presentation as we celebrate the convergence of innovation, molecular imaging, and theranostics, and envision the impact these advancements will have on the future of preclinical research, regenerative medicine, and ultimately their translation into clinic to effect real change for patients from around the world.

Join us at WMIC 2023 as we illuminate the path to a safer and healthier world. See you at the session!

    Yann Jamin, PhD
    Product Manager at Scintica

    Yann is an Application Specialist in preclinical MRI at Scintica and Children with Cancer Research UK Research Fellow at the Institute of Cancer Research London ( Honorary Researcher), where he led a translational program of research combining MRI and computational pathology ,aiming to make a difference for children with childhood neuroblastoma. His research specifically aimed to improve diagnosis, treatment planning, and response assessment in clinical trials for children with Childhood neuroblastoma. Yann’s imaging-guided studies I transgenic model has helped improve our understanding of treatment resistance to standard of care treatment and accelerating the delivery of multiple crucially needed smart and efficient treatment for children with refractory disease.
