About the hub

The Paris Centre hub incorporates four major research centers under the direction of the University of Paris and Sorbonne University. All are located in the vicinity of university hospitals (HEGP, Sainte-Anne, Cochin, Bichat-Beaujon, Pitié-Salpêtrière). This proximity facilitates the transfer of research results to innovation for the patient care. This research is based on the multimodal imaging expertise of the teams (MRI, PET, SPECT, US, Optical, CT, MEG-EEG, EPR, Magnetic Resonance Elastography and Ultrasound) and integrates several levels, from basic research in cognitive neuroscience and biomedical imaging methodology to in vivo small animal imaging, clinical research and diagnosis and therapeutic response in patients.

Expertises in the framework of FLI scientific activity 

Imaging biomarkers are at the heart of the Paris Centre hub’s research, with the objective of developing effective tools for diagnosis and for assessing prognosis and response to treatment. The research teams focus mainly on pathologies such as cancer, inflammation, infection and neurodegenerative diseases, with a particular emphasis on the liver, brain, skeletal muscle and cardiovascular system. Biomarkers are developed using structural, functional, cellular and molecular imaging. Particular emphasis is given on the development and validation of new contrast agents for molecular imaging (biochemical axis) and innovative methods for functional imaging.
