Visualizing Implanted Tumors in Mice with Magnetic Resonance Imaging Using Magnetotactic Bacteria

Me and my brother were contemplating about the possible imaging application of magnetotactic bateria. We decided to keep in a bit of a secret until he can submit his undergrad project proposal for resarch. However, quite accidently I have discovered that the idea and experiment design has already been suggested and supposedly someone is already working on this.

This is quite interesting, as this holds potential for accurate and absolute modeling and tracking of tumors whilst inducing minial to no damage to the patient and virutally no side-effetcs.

Read all about it here.
