Description:
MRI-based cell tracking is one of the most exciting and broadly impacting disciplines within radiology. Major advances in nanoparticle technology, coupled with advances in MRI technology, have yielded enhanced detection capabilities with sensitivity of individual cells in vivo. Novel probes and molecular biology provide the opportunity to monitor cell function and gene expression in vivo. Clinically important paradigms, such as stem cell transplantation, inflammation, cancer and regenerative medicine have benefited immensely from established protocols for using MRI-based cell tracking. Furthermore, a wealth of information has been garnered in basic sciences; in neuroscience, immunology and development, owing to MRI-based cell tracking.

Recently, MRI-based cell tracking has graduated from use as a research tool to clinical applications. While there have been only a few studies in humans, this progress is encouraging. This workshop is intended to bring together experts in nanoparticle technology, MRI and molecular and cell biology with biologists, biomedical engineers and physicians in an effort to share information across disciplines and accelerate the translation of MRI-based cell tracking to clinical settings.
