Next Seminar (edition #3) is planned for October 2022

The seminar series focuses on 4 areas

Each seminar covers two of the four areas.
  • TECHNIQUE
    introduce novel techniques and experimental concepts to combine nanomedicine and multiscale imaging for therapeutic and diagnostic approaches.
  • CLINIC
    update on clinical applications of IGDD and discussion on improving the transfer of preclinical results into the clinic.
  • INDUSTRY
    introduce products/solutions of small and large companies that support finding the right (imaging) solution. Moreover, many (inter)national grant opportunities demand for public-private partnerships: seminars shall provide you with further insights into industrial innovations/solutions and support interaction.
  • HOT PAPER
    discussion on recent publication in the IGDD field.

Suggestions/wishes from members are very welcome – just email us!

Seminars are held via Zoom. Registration is free of charge but obligatory and offered for members of the ESMI.
