PHeLINet Marie Curie Research and Training Network
PHeLINet is over!
During the 4-years life of the network, the scientists designed, developed, implemented and
applied new non-invasive imaging techniques for the diagnostic of lung diseases,
such as chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, asthma, cystic fibrosis and
lung cancer. To reach these objectives, the research activities of the Phelinet network
covered a wide range of scientific domains: from nuclear polarization using
optical pumping process to drug testing in animal models of lung diseases, together
with the investigation of patients suffering from pulmonary pathologies.
The scientific outcomes of the Phelinet Network
have been largely published in peer reviewed journals (43 published articles, 17 submitted manuscripts and 22 manuscripts in
preparation) and in books (7 chapters). These scientific results have been widely presented in international
conferences (86 articles in conference
The recruited researchers have significantly contributed to
the research activities as can be noticed from the number of publications in
which they are involved (25 published
articles, 17 submitted manuscripts and 22 in preparation, 60 conference
proceedings and 3 book chapters). The interdisciplinary and collaborative works
within the network are emphasized with the number of joint publications (10 published articles and 7 in preparation
Finally, the network activities have contributed
to the creation of one spin-off company
and to one pending patent.
Pi-Net (Pulmonary Imaging Network) has taken over!
