On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my pleasure to welcome you to The Fifth International Workshop on Metabolic Imaging. As in previous years, this three-day workshop brings together some of the leading experts in metabolic imaging from a range of different fields, to present their latest research and think together about how various imaging and non-imaging technologies including hyperpolarized carbon-13, PET, PET/MRI, and mass spectroscopy can be used to investigate significant biological problems.
The academic sessions of this workshop will focus on a number of clinically relevant topics including parahydrogen-induced polarization and molecular pathways, and will also include presentations on the most exciting recent advances in pulse sequence design and hardware development.
In planning this workshop, the organizing committee has sought to appeal to the broadest possible audience of investigators, clinicians, postdoctoral fellows, and students of all levels by designing a program which covers important aspects of molecular biology, medicine, physical chemistry and engineering. In showcasing the full potential of modern, interdisciplinary science research, this workshop aims to place its audience on the cutting-edge of metabolic imaging research.
Again, it is my utmost pleasure to welcome you to our campus.
