Successful first conference – 180°N
«Already today, 180°N is a project that is being noticed.” – Trond Mohn, philanthropist and industrialist.
These words marked the opening of the first, physical 180°N conference in Tromsø on 29-31 March 2022, gathering 110 attendees.
Illuminating brain tumours with radioactive sniffer dogs
Bringing light into the darkness of the brain by using radioactive molecules acting as “sniffer dogs” might help to improve the diagnostic and therapy of severe cancerous diseases. To make these little helpers visible, Positron-Emission-Tomography (PET) creates 3 dimensional images from the emitted photons and visualises brain tumour activity.
