Molecular imaging workshop

8 August 2011

The BMRI-ANSTO molecular imaging workshop will introduce to the research community the capabilities of molecular imaging and explain how to access the facility hosted at the University'sBrain and Mind Research Institute (BMRI).

The BMRI and ANSTO LifeSciences have recently formed a partnership to jointly operate a molecular imaging facility at the BMRI using their combined infrastructure and expertise.

The facility is a node of the National Imaging Facility (NIF) specialising in radioactive tracer imaging techniques, such as PET and SPECT.

There will be a tour of the facility and opportunities to discuss potential investigator projects.

Who should attend:

  • Researchers at any stage of their career who work on:
    - Animal models of disease, including (but not limited to) neurological, cardiovascular, oncological, metabolic and infectious diseases (particularly mice and rats but also non-human primates)
    - Longitudinal studies of disease progression and intervention
    - Novel drug screening in vivo
  • Potential users of molecular imaging who want to find out what it can do and how to initiate a project
  • Students and staff who are not necessarily intending to use molecular imaging but wish to learn about the technology


When: 9am, Wednesday 24 August 2011
Where: Conference room, Level 1, Building G, Brain and Mind Research Institute
