Who we are and why you should join

WHY? Enjoy a unique environment for (Italian) early-career imaging scientists to engage with peers and leaders in the field. Create, enlarge, and establish a strong community, foster colloborations, disseminate and enjoy the infinite possibilities of imaging science.

WHO? The Chat & Science Days is organized by Italian young ESMI Group and thus, the focus is on young(er) investigators, but participation is in no way limited to early-carrer scientists. In contrary: we aim to provide an informal platform for collaboration and exchange – also between generations!

WHO WE ARE? We are the young Italian Molecular Imaging Community – yITAMIC: a young, pioneering imaging science community in Italy who promotes the formation of a strong national network of young(-er) imaging scientists. yITAMICis a youngESMI group and embedded into the international envirnomnet of the European Society for Molecular Imaging – ESMI . Accordingly, all yITAMIC activities are organized under the umbrella of the ESMI.

We are particularly offering MSc/PhD students and early career post-docs an easy and informal entry into the broader international imaging community. In this sense, yITAMIC pursue to attract already young imaging scientists to the “mother” society – the ESMI.
