Structure and Function of The Brain

09:00 - 12:45 BERLIN Time

Presenters:

  • Prof. Klaus Scheffler - Max-Planck-Fellow & Director Department of Biomedical Magnetic Resonance, University of Tübingen
  • Prof. Hao Huang - Professor of Radiology, University of Pennsylvania
  • Prof. Seong-Gi Kim - Director of Neuroscience Imaging Research Center, Sungkyunkwan University

  • Wulf Jung, PhD - President Preclinical Imaging Division
  • Tim Wokrina, PhD - Market Product Manager MRI, Bruker
  • Mette Lauritzen, PhD - Product Marketing Manager Nuclear Molecular Imaging, Bruker

Klaus Scheffler will present a keynote lecture focusing on investigation of multiple levels of brain organization. Hao Huang and Seong-Gi Kim will expand on new findings with fMRI, before Joanes Grandjean explains the importance of standardization of fMRI studies. In a panel discussion, the speakers will then discuss the open challenges of fMRI and where its potential lies.

An Exploration of Metabolic Imaging

17:00 - 20:45 BERLIN Time

Presenters:

  • Prof. Arend Heerschap - Emeritus Professor in Biomedical MR, Radboud University Medical Centre
  • Prof. Greg Stanisz - Professor in the Department of Medical Biophysics, University of Toronto
  • Prof. Marty Pagel - Professor in the Departments of Cancer Systems Imaging and Imaging Physics, University of Texas
  • Prof. Kayvan Keshari - Associate Member and Laboratory Head, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
  • Wulf Jung, PhD - President Preclinical Imaging Division, Bruker
  • Tim Wokrina, PhD - Market Product Manager MRI, Bruker
  • Mette Lauritzen, PhD - Product Marketing Manager Nuclear Molecular Imaging, Bruker

Arend Heerschap will provide a keynote lecture on spectroscopy. Greg Stanisz will then provide an overview of practical applications of metabolic imaging methods. Marty Pagel will expand on CEST imaging and Kayvan Keshari continue with a discussion on hyperpolarization. During the panel discussion, the speakers will discuss what the future holds for various metabolic imaging methods, and where they see the greatest potential for employment.
