The lifecycle of SARS-CoV-2Friday, November 18, 2022
What happens if a SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus enters your lung? This molecular animation visualises how the virus particle can take over the host cell and turns it into a virus factory. Eventually, the host cell produces so many viral particles that it dies and releases numerous new virus particles.

Extra research groups to strengthen top institutes MERLN and M4iWednesday, April 13, 2022
DThe multimillion-euro investment in the LINK programme by the Province of Limburg, Maastricht University (UM) and Maastricht UMC+ (MUMC+) has achieved its targets. And the LINK programme is to have a sequel: UM and MUMC+ will be investing eight million euros in MERLN and M4i in the coming years to give an extra boost to regenerative medicine and imaging.
The M4I Division of Imaging Mass Spectrometry is one of the world leaders in high resolution molecular imaging of biological surfaces. The division targets the development and application of state-of-the-art mass spectrometry based molecular imaging approaches for biomedical cellular and tissue research. Main research aim for the coming years is to develop and apply mass spectrometry as a diagnostic and prognostic tool for personalized medicine.
The M4I imaging MS laboratories - a virtual tour
Join Prof. Ron M.A. Heeren for a virtual guided tour through the imaging mass spectrometry laboratories of M4I. You wil get some insights in the breadth of high end, mass spectrometry based molecular imaging infrastructure in the labs.
Perhaps a place where you would like to an internship or pursue a career in molecular imaging!
