MRI and Magnetic Particles for MRI Diagnostics


Feb 27th 2019 - Feb 27th 2019

Oxford, United Kingdom

Updated 09/01/19

This event will bring together industry with academia around developing MRI technologies.

The speakers and audience will be drawn from producers of standard MRI machines, small-scale novel and pre-clinical MRI developers/manufacturers, producers/distributors of magnetic micro- & nano- particles, and academics researching new alternative bio-compatible magnetic nano and micro particles for MRI-based diagnostics, or using MRI as a research tool. Talks and poster session targeted to non-specialist audiences to help stimulate discussion between industry and academia and facilitate the building of consortia. Representatives from the KTN will attend and speak about relevant I-UK (or other) funding opportunities for this area.

Poster submission: There will be interactive poster sessions and poster submissions are encouraged from any participants. Accepted student posters will gain free registration to the event. If you are interested to present a poster, please submit a short abstract (<300 words) plus the poster title, author/contributor names, affiliation addresses, and contact email address of the attendee/presenter. Please also indicate if you are a student (undergraduate/masters/PhD) if you wish to be considered for free registration. Please email the abstract in the form of a Word document to e.galanis@paragraf.com by 2pm on Friday 1st February 2019.


The dress code for the event is business attire / smart casual.
