In the last years, the improvement in the Optical Imaging allowed to strength his role on the imaging of small animal. Collaborations with CEA-LETI and IAB team led the development of innovative instruments for preclinical imaging application. For exemple, we mention a 2D fluorescence probe, a high sensitivity and resolution system for optical tomography and, more recently, a Raman Imaging device (Historam). These studies open new perspectives to bring these approaches towards clinical practice. Optical Imaging appears as promising to advance in the complete understand of patho-physiological processes involved in major health diseases, as cancer and neurodegenerative disorders.
In this context, the laboratory platform OPTIC CLINIC, installed since 2012 at University Hospital Centre of Grenoble, gathers together the different institutes of Grenoble environment (CEA, INSERM, UJF, CNRS) involved in the clinical transfer of innovative Optical Imaging tools. OPTIC CLINIC laboratory is directed by Dr. Jean-Luc Coll, team leader at Albert Bonniot Institute. This laboratory hosts projects for translational research and it is nationally recognized imaging facilities of the France Life Imaging program.
The main objectives of OPTIC CLINIC:
- To advance in the knowledge of living organisms, from the sub-cellular imaging to the entire human organs imaging;
- To investigate on major public health challenges;
- To promote the interest of biotechnology companies.
