The Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) is a governmental institution, founded in 1951, with the aim of funding fundamental research in physics in Italy and promoting its technological applications. With a staff of about 5,000 researchers and technicians, INFN presently features 21 units and 4 laboratories with accelerator and detector facilities. INFN research groups contribute to projects in the field of particle, astroparticle, nuclear and theoretical physics and interdisciplinary research with a particular focus on biomedical applications. The Torino unit is among the most active in the field of bio-medical physics, with several accomplishments, both in research and technology transfer. The group involved in the TRIMAGE project, coordinated by Dr. Piergiorgio Cerello, comprises senior and young staff researchers, post-docs and PhD students.
The group at INFN will contribute to the development of the PET system (WP3) and its subsequent installation and characterization (WP6). INFN will also contribute to WP8, in collaboration with TEIA and all the other partners for the organization of the various workshops.
