Super-Resolution Imaging: a joint project involving Prof. Jørgen Arendt Jensen, Technical University of Denmark, Prof. Michael Bachmann Nielsen, University Hospital Copenhagen and PhD-students Sofie Bech Andersen and Stinne Byrholdt Søgaard, BMI.
We are aiming at providing the first 3D image of the renal microcirculation in a living rat using ultrasound.
Renal effects of GLP-1: a co-operation with Prof. Jens Juul Holst; Dept. of Endocrinology Research, Prof. Boye L. Jensen; University of Southern Denmark and Dr.Med. Ali Asmar, University Hospital Copenhagen.
The project assesses the renal effects of GLP-1 in healthy and hypertensive rodents and humans.
Renal microrcirculation as an adaptive network: a joint project with associate professor Olga Sosnovtseva, UCPH, Prof. Will Cupples Simon Fraser University, Canada and Professor Donald Marsh, Brown University, USA.
The project will elucidate the topology of the renal vascular tree and its role in renal function.
