yITAMIC | the Italian young ESMI Group is the newest “kid in town” – welcome!
yITAMIC has one big goal: connecting the Italian community of early stage imaging scientists to foster collaboration between labs and groups.
Our dream is to become one big family which shares experience, tools, and a passion for science. This approach will promote the development of careers of early career scientists in the field of molecular imaging and will also lead to a strong Italian representation in the broader, international ESMI community – we invite all Italian early career scientists and Italians working abroad to participate!
Our Main Objectives
- To gather the early career molecular imaging community in Italy, create a proactive national network, and provide a supportive platform for sharing knowledge and experiences.
- To offer a very easy entry point for MSc, PhD, and (early) postDocs into the imaging science community.
- To offer an overview of the research activities in the field of molecular imaging in Italy.
- To foster scientific collaborations between different laboratories.
- To attract members to the ESMI in order to contribute to and strengthen the international imaging science community.
