Preclinical Imaging User Meeting

Fully booked! Preclinical MRI Users’ Meeting

We are delighted to invite you to this unique event. We will have a fantastic line up of 11 Key opinion leaders giving remarkable talks, sharing their vision, innovations and ideas to lead the future of translational research. This event will be hosted on Saturday June 16, right before the start of the ISMRM meeting. This will be the crossroad of the entire preclinical MRI community.

Do not miss this opportunity to networking with all your peers from all continents! Be there or miss out!
