SCIENTIFIC ABSTRACT WINS FIRST PLACE FROM SOCIETY FOR CARDIOVASCULAR MAGNETIC RESONANCE FOR HOPKINS RESEARCHERS

The Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) has awarded first place in its Best Basic Abstract competition to Johns Hopkins researcher Matthias Stuber, Ph.D.

The winning abstract, Signal-Enhanced Visualization of Magnetic Nanoparticle-Labeled Stem Cells Using Inversion Recovery ON-Resonant Water Suppression (IRON), summarized the research team’s new method for viewing stem cells via magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The technique tracks the deployment and migration of injected stem cells to their target within the body. It is hoped the technique will hasten the development of stem cells therapies by providing scientists with a way to monitor and identify success or failure.

Stuber’s team included Wesley Gilson, Ph.D., Jeff Bulte, Ph.D., and Dara Kraitchman, D.V.M., Ph.D., all members of Hopkins’s Department of Radiology and Radiological Sciences. Stuber also has an appointment in the Johns Hopkins University’s Department of Electrical Engineering. Bulte also holds an appointment in the Johns Hopkins Institute for Cell Engineering. Another member of the team, Michael Schar, Ph.D. holds a visiting faculty appointment in the Hopkins Department of Radiology.
