Molecular Imaging for Precision Medicine

At the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia


Our young team of passionate researchers, led by Dr. Irene Marco-Rius, works at the forefront of molecular imaging using a technique that increases the signal of magnetic resonance imaging more than 10.000 times. This dramatic increase means that we can now see molecular processes in real time, in situ, and non-invasively in a wide range of biological systems.

Our group’s research line is to detect, identify and validate biomarkers of disease. In particular, we focus on developing molecular imaging tools to identify abnormalities of cell metabolism in human disease and predict treatment efficacy.


MIPMED, the penguin

In January 2021 our group adopted a penguin from the colony of Punta Descubierta to support the efforts of the XXXIV Antarctic Campaign. We named it “MIPMED”.

Good luck in the austral summer, little MIPMED!

Last Saturday, those at #MIPMED had the opportunity to learn more about MRI, thanks to Professor Silvia Lope-Piedrafita from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. We are very excited about the rest of the course!
