We are very excited to host the first-ever HSC Preclinical Imaging Symposium on March 17 with onsite attendance at the UNT Health Science Center campus in Fort Worth and virtual attendance by Zoom connection. The event is free and open to all upon registration; we welcome participation by everyone in the scientific community who are interested in attending.
Preclinical imaging is the use of CT, MRI, PET, and SPECT technologies to facilitate translational research using small animal models to assess normal tissue and organ function, follow disease pathophysiology, and investigate new therapeutic approaches.
This event celebrates the major investment HSC has made in preclinical imaging that brings these state-of-the-art technologies to research scientists in North Texas. HSC has teamed up with MR Solutions, a leader in preclinical imaging systems, to build the facility. During the Symposium, there will also be scheduled opportunities to visit the facility and demo the imaging systems.
We have landed an outstanding group of speakers for the Symposium—some of the top researchers in the field of preclinical imaging. In a full-day forum, they will talk about how PET and MRI imaging technology can advance science and enable novel research in critical areas like neuroscience, diabetes and cancer.
We invite you to join us for the Symposium as an opportunity to learn how these technologies can facilitate your research and network with fellow scientists doing groundbreaking work using preclinical imaging.
