Congratulations to ToleRaM Nanotech, LLC, flagged as a finalist by BioProcess International (BPI) as an Emerging Company to watch!

ToleRaM Nanotech was developed through a collaboration between the MUSC Radiology and Surgery Departments as a platform to synthesize and market novel delivery devices wherein antirejection drugs are encapsulated in a biologically inert nanoparticle device and delivered in a focused manner to a transplanted organ with a triggered-release.

The devices marketed by ToleRaM capitalize on a growing appreciation that immune suppression at the graft level may have more profound effects on rejection than does systemic immunosuppression.

Congratulations to CBI Director of Cardiovascular Imaging, Dr. Joseph Schoepf!

Dr. Schoepf was recently awarded the "European Radiology-Most Cited Paper Award 2011", for his paper entitled "Coronary CT angiography: image quality, diagnostic accuracy, and potential for radiation dose redcution using a novel iterative image reconstruction technique-comparison with traditional filtered back projection", published in European Radiology in 2011.  Dr. Schoepf's paper received 62 citations in 2012-2013.

Vitria Adisetiyo, Ph.D., a postdoc in Dr. Helpern's group, was featured in a press release at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) (official release available here).

In addition to being featured in articles in news outlets across the country (google 'Vitria Adisetiyo ADHD' to see all!), Vitria is now also featured in the ADD and ADHD Health Center on WebMD!

Congratulations to Vee for all of her hard work - we look forward to reading more about her contributions to understanding how ADHD and low iron levels affect the human brain in the future!
