CIC biomaGUNE is a non-profit research organization created to promote scientific research and technological innovation at the highest levels in the Basque Country following the BIOBASQUE policy in order to create a new business sector based on biosciences.


Research Highlights

A recently published joint experiment of the research groups and platforms of the Molecular Imaging Unit at CIC biomaGUNE, in collaboration with researchers from Goethe University and University of Heidelberg (Germany), Bar-Ilan University (Israel), Wilhelminenspital Vienna (Austria) and Filarete Foundation (Italy) has been selected for the cover story of Journal of Controlled Release (Volume 214, page 134, 2015). The work, funded by a large scale EU project (SaveME), compares by in vivo SPECT and MR imaging the diagnosis efficiency of targeted versus non-targeted nanoparticles in a murine pancreatic cancer model.
