I research applications of spectral molecular imaging – with an NZ wide and international focus. Specific research projects include quantitative imaging methods to enable improved joint health, reduced risk of stroke, and improved cancer care. Our MARS research team crosses 4 universities, 12 disciplines, and involves 6 companies. The output of MedTech industry ready PhD graduates is steadily increasing. We enable commercialisation of MARS cameras and scanners, and targeted nanocontrast agent development. We are the lead in a steadily increasing number of international collaborations. We are intimately involved in the design of Christchurch’s new health precinct.
