Missions The major missions of the Medical Imaging Department are
To provide high quality diag- nostic and therapeutic services using radioactive elements.
To carry out translational and early clinical research, with a particular focus on new targeted treatments.
To deliver high quality pre- and postgraduate teaching in nuclear oncology.
To integrate imaging into the multidisciplinary oriented ap- proach to patient care.
The medical team comprises 4 nuclear medi- cine physicians, 1 radiopharmacist, 2 radio- physicists, 7 imaging technologists and/or nurses, 1 data-nurse and 2 administrative assistants.

In animals, study of immune-system response in leukaemia induced by a virus
With leukaemia patients, study of the role of suppressor lymphocytes in immune- system response
Comparison between leukaemia patients and healthy individuals with respect to their global immune systems
Based on previous research carried out on immune-response suppressor lymphocytes, a vaccine study involving patients with leukaemia relapse who have not undergone bone marrow transplantation
Missions Improving the treatment of
leukaemias through basic research and preclinical studies
Providing high-quality scientiﬁc training for young postgraduates and mentoring them to the PhD level
DePartMental organisat n
The Laboratory works closely with the Labo- ratory of Cell Therapy and the Department of Haemato-Oncology and Transplantation. Each research project is managed by a PhD student. The laboratory comprises 6 PhD sci- entists, 5 PhD students, 1 haematologist and 1 secretary.
the Future Fewer relapses in patients who have not been treated with bone marrow trans- plantation
Understanding the mechanisms that prevent cancer cells from being eliminated, despite having been identiﬁed by the immune system
Main areas Malignant B-cells Leukaemic immune environment
