The project CoDaFlight (Colouring the Dark in Fluorescence light) is the development of a next-generation imaging platform capable of revealing in real-time new and more accurate information related to a patient’s body and its diseases through an innovative time-domain fluorescence imaging (tdFLI) technology. The project started on October 1, 2022 and will run for a period of 4 years.
The project has received in 2022 funding from the HORIZON-EIC-2021-PATHFINDEROPEN program under number ID 101047263 and is the under management of the EISMEA office of the European Innovation Office.
The Consortium responsible for executing the project is:
Universitätsmedizin Göttingen, Germany; Prof. Frauke Alves, Dr. Christian Dullin, Dr. Andrea Markus and Dr. Stefan Lesemann
FORTH, Greece; Dr. Giannis Zacharakis, Dr. Vassilis Tsafas, Anna Tampakou and Dr. Emmanouil Vergis
Université of Bourgogne, France; Prof. Franck Denat, Prof. Anthony Romieu, Dr. Christine Goze, Dr. Hassan Al Sabeaand Elisa Chazeau
Universitetet i Bergen, Norway; Prof. Emmet McCormack, Dr. Katrin Kleinmanns and Dr. Vibeke Fosse
Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium; Prof. Maarten Kuijk (Project Coordinator) Dr. Hans Ingelberts, Prof. Sophie Hernot, Dr. Marc Stroet, Théo Lepoutte, Sevada Sahakian and Rik van Heijningen
Dr. Christian Dullin from Universitätsmedizin Göttingen is part of work packages 1,2 and 3 of the CoDaFlight project. In the project, Christian leads the user software development of the tdFLI instrument and the development of real-time algorithms for the analysis of the data. With other colleagues from Universitätsmedizin Göttingen, he focuses on the generation of validated proofs-of-concept on the use and advantages of tdFLI for different medical applications.
Hans Ingelberts from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel is leading work package 2 of the CoDaFlight project. In this work package, the project members are building the next generation fluorescence lifetime imaging devices for clinical application. We have interviewed Hans about his role in the project and the main challenges of the project.
From 14-17 March, the 18th European Molecular Imaging Meeting (EMIM) took place in the world-famous Mirabell park gardens in the heart of Salzburg, the city of Mozart. Five months into the project, the CoDaFlight members conducted in parallel their first annual meeting. At this meeting, we discussed the scientific progress, intensified our collaborations, instrument requirements, …
CoDaFlight (Colouring the Dark in Fluorescence light) radical vision is the development of a next-generation optical imaging platform, capable of revealing in real-time new and more accurate information, that provides an optical fingerprint related to a patient’s body and its diseases through an innovative time-domain fluorescence imaging (tdFLI) technology. The objectives of CoDaFlight are to …
Kick-off CoDaFlight took place on October 7, 2022. Two and half years after the formation of the consortium and maturing the radical vision of CoDaFlight together, we proudly kicked-off the project in a virtual meeting. The consortium partners and 17 scientists and key players from 5 countries were present and they collectively bring together the …
