The Peacock Group has developed a new MRI imaging probe with the potential to drastically improve the identification of disease compared to the current standard. This new design uses a miniature protein which binds to an active metal. MRI is a technique commonly used in hospitals to look inside the body without the need for invasive surgery. Contrast agents can be injected to allow for easier diagnosis of disease. Factors affecting contrast agents:
1.Rate of tumbling (peptide length)
2.Association with water
