Preclinical Nuclear Imaging Symposium 2018

The PNI symposium caters to the UK nuclear imaging community with attendees from both academia and industry, and provides an excellent platform for scientific communication and networking. Themed "Discover – Develop – Translate" this year’s meeting will feature three scientific sessions to showcase recent advances in nuclear imaging across a diversity of applications. A poster pitch session will give young researchers the opportunity to present their work.

We are delighted to welcome Professor Bertrand Tavitian (Université Paris Descartes) as keynote speaker. Bertrand is a world-leading expert in the field of nuclear imaging, with experience in molecular imaging in neurology, inflammation and cancer, PET radiotracer development and validation of innovative instruments and methods for quantitative imaging in animals and humans.

The symposium is kindly endorsed by the European Society for Molecular Imaging.

Scientific Programme

Themed "Discover – Develop – Translate" this year’s meeting will feature three scientific sessions. We have an exciting speaker line-up for the sessions, and we are looking forward to plenary talks delivered by Christopher Cawthorne (KU Leuven, Belgium), Gabriela Kramer-Marek (The Institute of Cancer Research, UK), David Lewis (Beatson Institute Glasgow, UK), André Müller (Life Molecular Imaging, Germany), Wim Oyen (Institute of Cancer Research London, UK) and Richard Southworth (King’s College London, UK). The keynote lecture will be given by Bertrand Tavitian (Université Paris Descartes, France).
