Experimental and Clinical Imaging Technologies


EXCITE Zurich brings together more than 50 researcher groups from the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich, and clinical experts from the University Hospital of Zurich, to jointly and efficiently translate new ideas from basic research into clinical practice. Due to the pre-​existing exchange among the members, their long-​lasting collaborations and the proximity of the partners of the network, a unique platform was created, connecting specialists from the physical sciences and engineering with medical doctors and researchers in the life sciences. A broad spectrum of cutting-​edge imaging technologies is available within the network, including magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, infrared and optical microscopy, electron microscopy and X-​ray microscopy, covering the entire spectrum from the molecular to the anatomical level. The exchange of information from bench to bedside and vice versa catalyzes the efficient translation of new methods from academic laboratories to the clinics.
