Radical Dendrimers as Contrast Agents for Magnetic Resonance Imaging

José Vidal Gancedo, researcher from ICMAB-CSIC and CIBER-BBN is leading the project VIRADEN: “In vivo Studies of Radical Dendrimers as Contrast Agents for Magnetic Resonance Imaging“, one of the ICMAB Frontier Interdisciplinary Projects (FIP) 2021.

The project aims to evaluate the new contrast agents for MRI based on organic radical dendrimers developed in his group, to substitute the currently used contrast agents based on toxic metals, with the final goal of obtaining useful contrast agents in the early detection of tumors

José Vidal has explained NANBIOSIS participation in the project through Biomaterial Processing and Nanostructuring equipments of NANBIOSIS U6 counting with the expertise of José Amable Bernabé and the Ex vivo and in vivo studies with dendrimers for MRI of NANBIOSIS U25 with the expertise of Ana Paula Candiota.

ICMAB FIPs are possible thanks to the financial support from the Spanish Ministry Science and Innovation, through the “Severo Ochoa” Programme for Centres of Excellence in R&D (CEX2019-000917-S).
