MedViz – a Research & Development cluster in Bergen. MedViz is a cluster of groups performing interdisciplinary research in advanced image analysis and visualisation bridging the gap between “bench and bedside”. MedViz also includes imaging physics and fundamental biomedical translational research. Our mission is to promote the development of biomedical and clinical imaging technologies with the ultimate goal of improving diagnosis and treatment of patients. MedViz wants to develop new clinical methods for potential commercialisation by means of denovo software for analysis, decision support and visual communication.

Seminar title: Sonoporation: From the lab to human clinical trials
   
ABSTRACT
Sonoporation, the use of ultrasound and stable gas microbubbles in the size range of 2–10 μm to form
transient pores in cell membranes, has  been of great interest as a therapeutic modality for the past decade.
This technique could be used to improve the delivery of current drugs in very localised regions. Within
MedViz, a translational team has been developing sonoporation for use against pancreatic cancer, a cancer
with particular low survival and where limited advances in new therapy have been experienced. Through ex
vivo and preclinical models the sonoporation technique we have demostrated that it can be used safely in
patients with local advanced pancreatic cancer. A companion biomarker has been developed for monitoring
the sonoporation-specific cell stress, and may be a method for monitoring effect and toxicity in future clinical
trials.  We will present our results so far and discuss plans for further pre-clinial and clinical development of
therapeutic sonoporation.

MedViz Photo Competition

Scientific photo- and illustration competition

 
MedViz wishes to use scientific pictures to profile its activity. This is because all our activities are based on images, image information and its utilization for improved diagnoses resulting in better patient treatment. Concurrently, some of these pictures appear as beautiful illustrations, verging on art pieces, as shown below.
        

Please, send pictures and illustrations in the highest resolution attached a short back- ground information within Tuesday 31.03.2015 to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
By submitting your pictures you hereby give MedViz the rights of use for profiling purposes, with a clear reference to the originator. MedViz has established a committee who will evaluate the
received pictures, from which the three best pieces will be awarded a personal reward of 1.000 NOK and free participation at the next MedViz Conference 2015.

MedIm Bridging Grants 2015

MedIm Bridging Grants 2015

MedIm - Norwegian Research School in Medical Imaging, will offer four grants, each of NOK 225.000, to support recent master's graduates or medical doctors, who need salary funds for a shorter period while applying for a PhD grant. We aim to give talented students a chance to stay within the field of medical imaging, by providing continuity of income for 4 months while applying for funding for a PhD project. The application has to be supported by a supervisor and by a unit/department at a Norwegian institution (University, University Hospital  etc)
Deadline: 30 April 2015
