8th Translational Imaging Workshop by AMIE: From mouse to man
Tuesday 11, Wednesday 12, Thursday 13 , and Friday 14 November 2014

The programme Applied Molecular Imaging at Erasmus MC (AMIE) provides a platform for scientists interested in imaging technology and molecular imaging in general.

Aim of this Workshop
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 being organized for the 8th time, following upon seven very successful workshop from 2008 to 2013.

This workshop is designed for PhD students and researchers in one of the Erasmus Postgraduate Schools; PhD students and researchers from other universities are also welcome.
The total number of participants in the course is limited to 70; the total number of participants in the demonstrations and lab visits is limited to 40. Both are based on 'First comee, first serve'. Tuition is €550; however, most non-commercial participants are expected to qualify for a (partial) scholarship. See the program for all details.

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.

The workshop counts for 1,4 ECTS credit points, including all lab visits and self-study.

General information
Financial regulation of the Postgraduate School Molmed

From August 1st, 2012 the following financial rules apply:

Non-commercial course, symposium or workshop fee: €200/day, €750/week

• Participants of the postgraduate school MolMed: discount of 100%.
• Other Erasmus MC participants, e.g. of MGC, COEUR, NIHES: discount of 50%.
• PhD students and Master’s students, regardless of institution: discount of 50%.
• Master’s students who are paying the fee from their personal budget: discount of 75%.

There is one fee for the entire course. There is no reduction for partial participation.

The SPSS Course and the R Course have shorter course days. The SPSS Course counts as a 2-days course and the R Course as a 3-days course.

Commercial participants & sponsors: companies are invited to inquire about commercial participant tuition fees and about sponsoring.

Those who register for a course, symposium or workshop agree with these financial conditions.
