grant awarded for novel fluorescence imaging!

UMCG researchfonds

Last week, our group received great news. The Cancer Research Funds of the UMCG awarded the proposal titled “Novel fluorescence imaging using a state-of-the art detection platform for enhanced detection of cancer – a true multidisciplinary approach” with €75.000,- !

With this award, we will be able to, in collaboration with Quest Medical Imaging, obtain the latest intra-operative fluorescence imaging device; the Quest Spectrum 3.0. This will allow us to further investigate and implement fluorescence imaging in the clinical setting, focusing more and more on trials with clinical endpoints. An additional, state-of-the-art imaging device, that can be used at the operation room for all type of surgeries that benefit fluorescence imaging, was a long-desired ambition for project coordinators Schelto Kruijff, Floris Voskuil, and Milou Noltes. Therefore, it goes without saying that the team is delighted with the funding, and looks forward to implementing the device in a variety of clinical research projects.
