The Fourth International Workshop on Hyperpolarized Carbon-13 and Its Application in Metabolic Imaging

February 25  27, 2016

Download the program brochure
Over the course of this three-day workshop, leading experts from a variety of fields will present their current research and discuss how significant biological problems can be probed with a variety of imaging and nonimaging technologies including hyperpolarized carbon-13, PET, PET/MRI, and mass spectroscopy. The academic sessions of this workshop will cover a wide range of clinically relevant topics including, but not necessarily limited to, molecular pathways, systems biology of the mitochondria, and metabolomics. Discussion of the most recent advances in hardware development and pulse sequence design will also be included.
