Pharmacology platforms and expertise

ADN - Pharm'imageCreated in 2008 in Dijon, Pharm’image is a regional center of excellence in Pharmaco-imaging. Unique in France, it brings together hospitals, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical companies, to create an Economic Interest Group (EIG)..

Its aim is to deploy cutting-edge medical imaging technologies to evaluate biomarkers that can be used to track treatment efficacy and select the active and most promising drug candidates.

Novel therapies are converging towards precision medicine, for which pharmaco-imaging is indispensable to all players in the drug development cycle – from the pharmaceutical industry to clinicians – to ensure that the most appropriate treatments are being matched to the needs of the patient.

Pharm’image comprises a portfolio of functional and molecular imaging technologies (MRI, PET, SPECT, CT), ranging from small-animal scale for preclinical experimentation to clinical exploitation.

The nuclear imaging platform has ready access to cyclotron and radiochemistry laboratory to offer state-of-the-art radiolabeling technologies for small molecules, peptides or antibodies.
Our goal is to improve the efficiency and productivity in the research and development lifecycle of new drugs. The Pharm’image platform is open to scientific collaborations, or fee-for-service activities, for industry players and academic institutions alike.


IMAPPI – A new integrated PET-MRI system installed

Last step of the IMAPPI project (reference ANR-10-EQPX-05-01/IMAPPI Equipex), one of the first integrated PET-MRI system in Europe has just been installed on the Pharm’image preclinical imaging platform at the CGFL. Started in 2012, IMAPPI program allowed to validate a first prototype of PET-MRI installe in parallel (2012-2014). Then an in-line system was developped (2014-2016), which […]
