Brain conductivity as a biomarker for atypical neurodevelopment 

Brain conductivity as a biomarker for atypical neurodevelopment 

Background: The brain is inherently an electrically conductive organ, but standard imaging modalities are not well equipped to measure its electrical properties (EPs). This is particularly relevant for studying neurodevelopment – pre-clinical studies show that...
Bacterial Siderophores as Tools for Diagnostic Imaging 

Bacterial Siderophores as Tools for Diagnostic Imaging 

Scientific basis: Multi-drug resistant bacterial pathogens are frequent causes of hospital acquired infections which are often difficult to diagnose and treat. Pathogenic bacteria produce and small molecules with high iron affinity (Kaff >1025) known as...

Gene therapy of traumatic brain injury using focused ultrasound

Background: Traumatic brain injury (TBI)is a leading cause of death and disability, with no effective restorative treatment to date. Current approaches include direct administration of viral vectors encoding proteins to promote neuroplasticity and neurogenesis....
