Graduate students: Elina Hoppela, Miikka Honka, Hanna-Riikka Lehto The goals of the Programme in Molecular Imaging in Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research are: 1) To investigate physiology of cel ular metabolism in the cardiovascular system and at whole body level; 2) To study pathophysiology of major cardiac and metabolic disorders such as coronary heart disease, heart failure and diabetes using non-invasive molecular imaging techniques in animals and humans. The additional goal 3) is to develop novel non-invasive molecular imaging probes and techniques. The research consists of 7 specific research projects. The projects are 1) Imaging of vulnerable plaque; 2) Brain, liver, fat and pancreas: A neuro-metabolic network and Professor Pirjo Nuutila, M.D., Ph.D.
responsible for diabetes and obesity; 3) Regulation of skeletal muscle, connective tissue, and myocardial blood flow and metabolism in trained and untrained men; 4) Dynamics of the living human body under a microscope; Turku PET Centre, P.O. Box 52, FI-20520 Turku, Finland; 5) In vivo imaging of inflammation; 6) Development of Phone: +358-2-313 2482; Fax: +358-2-231 8191; ultrasound MRI- and PET-CT-methods to study coronary artery physiology and pharmacology and 7) Labeling Professor Professor Pirjo Nuutila, Turku PET Centre, chemistry for specific and selective PET-radiotracers.

For example the modeling project wil provide a common methodological platform to the other projects, by Senior investigators: Docent Kari Kalliokoski, establishing a deeper quantification of intracel ular Ph.D., Docent Patricia Iozzo, M.D., Ph.D., tracer pathways in the same tissues and under the Docent Olli Raitakari, M.D., Ph.D., Prof. Jaakko conditions of the other projects. Moreover, the projects Hartiala, M.D., Ph.D., Docent Anne Roivainen, Ph.D., complement each other so that each project wil cover one specific area of research and provide information Prof. Juhani Airaksinen, M.D., Ph.D.
that is necessary for the success of the other projects.

Recently, information Turku PET Centre has been one of the pioneers from genotyping has been combined with PET data of in cardiometabolic imaging and researchers have perfusion and metabolism in myocardium and muscle. published around 400 original reports and developed Special interest has been focused on intervention several new methods. During the last 5 years it has trials. In addition, imaging of inflammation, nervous published 185 original articles. During the years function, and neuroendocrine tumours as wel as 2000-2004, the cardio-metabolic research teams have aspects of instrumentation, imaging physics, processing, published 20 Ph.D. theses works and 4 licentiate theses. reconstruction and model ing are studied. The group has The research group has been active in early stage introduced many new applications for non-invasive PET training. The cardio-metabolic PET group has been a imaging (insulin-glucose-clamp, new methods for the Marie Curie host training site since 2000. During this assessment of muscle blood flow, myocardial and skeletal time five fel ows have been trainers in the Centre. The muscle oxygen metabolism, free fatty acid metabolism attractiveness has been based on the scientific level in health and disease, measurements of metabolism in of the research, stimulating training environment; a adipose tissue and liver, localisation of hyperinsulism structured training program, methodological courses in infants) and methodological refinements in the as a part of the Ph.D. program at the University of instrumentation (new image reconstruction methods, Turku and personal supervision provided by senior tissue heterogeneity and fractal analysis, tracer validation Vänttinen, M., Nuutila, P., Kuulasmaa, T., Pihlajamäki, J., Hällsten, K., Virtanen, K.A., Lauttamäki, R., Peltoniemi, P., Kemppainen, J., Takala, T., Viljanen, A.P., Knuuti, J. and Laakso, M.
