The power of an image

After an image of Prof Phil Butler’s ankle went viral last year, the MARS team discovered just how powerful an image can be. This year the members of the MARS programme, a joint research programme between the University of Canterbury and University of Otago, have continued to demonstrate how x-ray colour technology is going to change the future of medical and molecular imaging.

Highlights from the year have included a feature article in Nature Reviews Physics, several of our images making it on to the cover of journals, working with leading cancer researchers from ACTREC (Tata Memorial Centre) to produce a chapter in the newly released Springer Nature book “Unravelling Cancer Signaling Pathways: A Multidisciplinary Approach” and a very successful collaboration with the University of Maryland  producing images of hafnia nanoparticles targeted to bone microfractures.

The team is looking forward to more exciting results in 2020. Keep up to date with our latest research by following @MARSBioimaging on Twitter.
