Tallahassee, FL--Prof. Lloyd Lumata, a member for the Users Advisory Committee for the Electron Magnetic Resonance (EMR) Program of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL), attended the advisory meeting at the magnet lab on September 19-20, 2018.
Richardson, TX--The Lumata group was recently awarded with a High-Risk, High Impact grant of $200,000.00 for 2 years from the Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT). The Lumata group will utilize the highly-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique known as hyperpolarized 13C MRI to non-invasively track and image metabolic biomarkers in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), a highly aggressive form of brain cancer. The hyperpolarization technology will enhance the MRI signals of two key amino acids in GBM by 10,000-fold and used it for non-invasive metabolic and diagnostic imaging of this pathology. Furthermore, a UTD cancer imaging facility CPRIT grant led by Dr. Kenneth Hoyt of Bioengineering, was also funded for the purchase of small animal MRI scanner and other cancer-related imaging modalities. It's a great day for UT Dallas! More information about the CPRIT 2018 awards can be found at: http://www.cprit.state.tx.us/news/cprit-surpasses-2-billion-milestone-with-64-new-grants/
