Low-grade epilepsy-associated brain tumours (LEAT) are rare entities with poor interobserver histopathology agreement. The WHO has established an integrated genotype- phenotype classification for most brain tumor entities, but not LEAT. Bioinformatical deep learning algorithms have proven success in extracting such genotype- phenotype information from histopathology slides. Our research proposal evolves around this innovative approach in order to provide diagnostically useful imaging biomarkers.

Intestinal strictures are a major disease burden in Crohn’s disease. Conventional cross-sectional imaging modalities are currently not able to differentiate between inflammatory and fibrotic components of strictures. This would be essential for the initiation of the appropriate therapy. In a translational approach we want to investigate whether optoacoustic imaging can be used to quantify hemoglobin as a sign of inflammation and collagen as a sign of fibrosis in murine and human intestine.
