Translational Imaging Workshop by AMIE: from mouse to man

The aim of this 4-day workshop is to give a broad introduction into preclinical and translational Molecular Imaging techniques and their applications in biology and medicine. This workshop is designed for PhD students and researchers looking to learn about imaging.

Date: Nov 12 – 14, 2014

Target audience: Biologists; Clinical researchers; Medical doctors; Research assistants

Program: Several applications in translational research will be discussed, such as multi-modality detection, imaging of cancer, and imaging of vascular diseases. In addition to the lectures presented in the programme, practical demonstrations on the different imaging devices will be given at the AMIE Facility, designed to facilitate multi-modal animal imaging. SPECT/CT (U-SPECT/CT, NanoSPECT/CT), PET (Inveon), CT (Skyscan), optical (ICIS), and MRI (7T GE/Varian) imaging equipment are housed in a single complex.
