Tammy Kalber
Principle Research Fellow
University College London (UCL; UK)

Dr Kalber is a Principle Research Fellow at the Center for Advanced Biomedical Imaging (UCL). Her work centers on developing innovative imaging techniques using nanochemistry and molecular engineering to monitor cell therapies in vivo. In her work, Dr Kalber intends to correlate quantitative delivery and localization of cells, with the assessment of cell viability, in order to investigate the efficacy of cell therapies and predict their potential therapeutic outcomes.

Patricia Murray
Professor of Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine
University of Liverpool (UK)

Patricia Murray is a Professor of Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine at the Institute of Translational Medicine (Liverpool, UK). Her current research includes investigating the safety and efficacy of regenerative medicine therapies for renal and other diseases and exploring the underlying mechanisms of action. To this end, she works with chemists and imaging physicists at Liverpool to develop novel imaging probes and multi-modal imaging strategies to monitor the biodistribution and fate of the administered cell therapies and determine their ability to improve renal function and architecture.
