Techna is excited to welcome Dr. Paula Foster as our next speaker for Techna Rounds. Dr. Paula Foster is a Scientist at the Robarts Research Institute and Associate Professor in the Department of Medical Biophysics at the University of Western Ontario. As the leader of the Cellular and Molecular Imaging program at Robarts Dr. Foster is developing imaging and cell labeling technology that uses ultra‐ high resolution MRI to detect cells labeled with magnetic nanoparticles. This advanced MRI technology has enormous potential, with limitless applications in a number of diseases and disorders. The Foster lab is currently focused on the use of these techniques to track stem cells used for tissue repair and regeneration and to monitor cancer cell metastasis and immune cells used as cancer treatments.
