BLOC Project at the 2023 ISMRM & ISMRT Annual Meeting & Exhibition in Toronto

Last 03-08 of June, Marc Azagra showcased BLOC Project at the 2023 ISMRM & ISMRT Annual Meeting & Exhibition, in Toronto, Canada.

The Annual Meeting & Exhibition of the “International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM)”, and its section “International Society for Magnetic Resonance Radiographers & Technologists (ISMRT)” took place last 03rd to 08th of June in Toronto, Canada, bringing together the most renowned researchers in the magnetic resonance field.

In this context, Marc Azagra, researcher at the Molecular Imaging for Precision Medicine group led by Irene Marco at IBEC in Barcelona, presented the BLOC technology: a benchtop NMR spectrometer designed and optimized to monitor real-time metabolism of 3D tissue engineered on microfluidic platforms using hyperpolarization by dynamic nuclear polarization.

He had the opportunity to exchange with an extremely interested audience about the project and to get insights and inspiration to improve the work.
