Welcome to the fourth annual In Vivo Animal Imaging: Methods and Applications minisymposium and course on December 7th 2022 – January 13th 2023, organized by the Helsinki In Vivo Imaging Platform and Doctoral Programmes in Biomedicine & Chemistry and Molecular Sciences at the University of Helsinki!
The Zoom webinars in the minisymposium are open to all without registration, and include several talks from invited international speakers focusing on recent and scientifically exciting applications of a range of in vivo imaging modalities. This year we will be covering topics within cancer & metastasis, immunology, neurobiology and drug transport in the cerebrospinal fluid. For students & other researchers new to subject, the course will also cover the principles of in vivo animal imaging modalities including intravital microscopy, optical small animal imaging, microCT and PET/SPECT/CT, with the aim of opening up the field of in vivo animal imaging and its use in pre-clinical research applications for those who might benefit from using in vivo animal imaging for their own studies.
See the attached program & join us at: https://helsinki.zoom.us/j/62785930416
The course will also include live small-group instrument demos at the Helsinki local facilities, and a study assignment for students. All those who wish to join the demos should register via this e-lomake by Dec 4th: https://elomake.helsinki.fi/lomakkeet/120900/lomake.html
Helsinki University students who need credits for the course also need to register via Sisu (course code DPBM-148); we can provide visitor access to the course Moodle & an ECT credit certificate for students from other institutions.
