The research group focuses on the human in vivo imaging of stroke in terms of
- hemodynamic compromise
- tissue loss
- disturbance of functional networks
Different imaging modalities are applied in a comparative and additive approach in order to improve clinical stroke imaging and therapy. The research group is located at the Charité Campus Mitte (CCM). Imaging studies are performed at the Campus Mitte (3 T MRI, whole brain perfusion CT), the Campus Virchow Klinikum (PET imaging), the Campus Benjamin Franklin (3 T MRI) and at the MDC Berlin Buch (7 T MRI, 3 T MRI).
The research group within the Center for stroke research Berlin (CSB)
The efforts of the research group are focused to optimize stroke diagnosis and to develop innovative, pathophysiology driven therapeutic approaches.The CSB presents a unique opportunity for this kind of stroke research. While imaging expertise in the relevant fields (Neuroradiology, Nuclear Medicine, clinical and preclinical stroke imaging) is present in the research group, the integration within the CSB offers further advantages. The coordination of stroke care and research among the different sites of the Charité ensures a large sample size for inclusion in clinical imaging studies. Moreover, the co-operation with basic science research groups (Experimental Neurology) and clinical epidemiology (CEHRiS) improves the design of our imaging studies.
Opportunities for students
The research group offers the opportunity for rotations (at least 4 weeks) for students in the field of neuroscience or medicine, who are interested in gaining experience in advanced and multimodal neuroimaging. Moreover, applications of medical students interested in the field of clinical neuroimaging to acquire their ?Dr.med? within the research group are welcome. Please send a possible time period, a short letter of motivation and a CV to: email@example.com
