This subproject is one of many research subprojects utilizing theresources provided by a Center grant funded by NIH/NCRR. The subproject andinvestigator (PI) may have received primary funding from another NIH source,and thus could be represented in other CRISP entries. The institution listed isfor the Center, which is not necessarily the institution for the investigator.A weekly lunch-time seminar series is presented by the Center for In Vivo Microscopy, which provides a method for graduate students and staff to discuss topics of interest to small animal imaging through a journal club, and to share their research progress with others in the department and with local investigators. Previously, the seminiars were available for 1 course credit, under the direction of Dr. Srini Mukundan and Dr. Bastiaan Driehuys. Starting Spring 2008, because of conflicting topics, the seminar is not available for credit.The seminars are open to our staff, collaborators, the local Duke University community, and external collaborators. Visitors to the department or external investigators provide special seminar topics.Summer 2007  informal, no course creditJuly 10 GA Johnson (CIVM): Ethics and authorshipJuly 17 Gabe Howles (CIVM): Dissection of the MEMRI effect by x-ray microanalysisJuly 24 Bastiaan Driehuys (CIVM): Writing from reader's perspective, a distillation of George Gopen's Duke scienntific writing courseJuly 31 Bastiaan Driehuys (CIVM): Writing homework and dissection of paragraphsAugust 7 Ned Rouze (CIVM, BME): Evaluation of the Indiana small animal PET scannerAugust 21 Gabe Howles (CIVM): Informal demonstration of the Amira Image Analysis packageFall 2007  one course creditAugust 29 GA Johnson (CIVM): MR histologySept 5 Libby Bucholz (CIVM): Cardiac MRI in the mouseSept 12 Samuel Johnson (CIVM): Building and calibrating a micro-CT system, the nuts and the boltsSept 19 Bastiaan Driehuys (CIVM): Alveolar capillary transfer imaging with HP 129XeSept 26 Zackary Cleveland (special seminar; visitor from Colorado State): Hyperpolarized Krypton-83: a quadrupolar HP noble gas isotope for NMR and MRIOct 10 Nilesh Mistry (CIVM): Pulmonary perfusion imaging in the rodents: technical developments and application to disease modelsOct 17 Liz Jenista (Warren group): Extending the lifetime of hyperpolarized carbonOct 23 Ketan Ghaghada (Radiology, CIVM): Progress in developing liposomal contrast mediaOct 31 John Nouls (CIVM): Basics of compressed sensing MRINov 7 Alexandru Avram (XX): Functional MRI using BOLD and Arnaud Guidon: Functional diffusion imaging of the human brain: an alternative to BOLD fMRINov 14 Alexandra Petiet (CIVM): 4-D atlas of the developing mouse using MRMNov 28 Senetta Bancroft (XX): Confocal microscopy: applications in neurobiology and Ashley Davis-Stokes (Warren group): Development of a functionalized xenon biosensor: toward molecular imaging Dec 5 Tamara Branca PhD (Warren group): Toward early detection of lung mestastasesSpring 2008  informal, no course credit FORMAT: 1) Presenter will give a 25 min presentation on their results and plans; 2) Goals are to get as much feedback and input from the group as possible; 3) Presenter will lay out at least one issue that is causing trouble or confusion in their researchJan 17 Special seminar Post-doc candidate, Earl Babcock MRIJan 30 Special seminar Post-doc candidate, Indrajit Saha, Southern IL Univ.: Hyperpolarized Xenon, SPIONs, and asphaltenes in crude oil: some new developments in enhancing sensitivity, contrast, and information content in NMR and MRIFeb 6 Group discussion: Review of P41 grant renewal proposalFeb 13 Group discussion: Review of P41 grant renewal proposalFeb 20 Nilesh Mistry (CIVM): Creating airway obstruction and measuring effects with 3He MRI and dynamic contrast-enhanced imagingFeb 27 Nilesh Mistry (CIVM): Efforts to quantify 3He MRI images in mice undergoing methacholine challengeMarch 5 Steve Zhang (CIVM): Preliminary results for optical imagingMarch 19 Alexandra Badea (CIVM): BXD mice brain morphometryMarch 26 John Nouls (CIVM): 9T superconducting magnetApril 2 John Nouls (CIVM) High-temperature superconducting transmit/receive coilsApril 9 Cristian Badea (CIVM) 4D perfusion imaging using micro-CTApril 16 Liz Jenista (Warren group) Imaging anisotropy with positive contrastApril 23 group cleanup of WIKI internal web-based information siteApril 29 review of upcoming ISMRM presentations
