SSF Grant to Academic partner Prof. Topgaard

Our Research Partner Prof. Topgaard receives an Instrument, Technique and Method Development grant from the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (“SSF”) for the project “MRI method for quantifying microscopic heterogeneity” where RWI holds the IP for the methods to be developed. The press release can be found here (in Swedish).

The grants have been distributed amongst researchers who focus on new instruments, methods and techniques, that in turn aim to improve future advanced research and innovation.  Thus, we are not surprised at the recognition of Prof. Topgaard, as he, as well as his research, strives relentlessly to improve diffusion MRI and bring techniques from solid-state NMR to the clinic.

Random Walk Imaging AB is developing a novel proprietary approach to diffusion MRI. RWI is commercializing dVIEWR powered by MICE Toolkit™ as a novel software solution for clinical researchers and radiologists to better visualize and analyze diffusion MRI data. The company’s software solutions introduce a level of specificity to diffusion MRI that is unprecedented and that has the potential to non-invasively differentiate pathologies affected by changes in tissue microstructure. Based in Lund, part of the Swedish-Danish cross-border region of Medicon Valley, RWI has a broad intellectual property portfolio and unique translational expertise in advanced diffusion NMR and MRI methods.
