and details on accommodation, location, registration, speakers, etc.

Guest speakers and members of the Medical Physics Group will present new developments in preclinical MRI. The new research labs can be visited in a guided tour. We invite you to meet, discuss, celebrate, and - most importantly - have a good time with your colleagues in the field of preclinical research.

ENCITE is proud to have the MRI group as consortium partner und to organise the course in collaboration with EIBIR, Co-ordinator of the ENCITE project.



EIBIR Summer School on Imaging in Neurology - ENCITE Session

21-26 August
Center for Advanced Academic Studies (CAAS), Dubrovnik/Croatia

ENCITE is very proud to have a joint collaboration with EIBIR's Joint Initiative Biomedical Image Analysis Platform and its school.

The EIBIR Summer School on Imaging in Neurology is a mulitdisciplinary summer school, uniting about 50 young researchers coming from a variety of backgrounds. The high scientific level and the relaxed atmosphere invite a close and fruitful interaction between everybody present, both participants and staff.

Imaging modalities (MR, PET, CT), quantitative image analysis, (open-source) tools for image analysis, neuro- and population imaging and image analysis in clinical practice, validation and open- source databases, atlases, applic ations in the clinic, small animals and clinical trials.

ENCITE educational course "Molecular MR Imaging in Experimental Neuroscience"

30 June - 2 July
Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Cologne/DE

Objectives and audience:
The course is designed to familiarise the audience with the definition and the methodological requiremtents for application of Molecular Imaging with primary focus on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

The course will be held within the "Lectures on MR" programme of the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB). Both partners Max-Planck-Gesellschaft/De and University of Basel/CH are responsible for the programme.

Three days, three ENCITE events. Don't miss them!

Check them out here.

19-21 June
Leiden University Medical Center/NL

The congress brings together top European scientists from various disciplines working in diverse fields of molecular imaging to discuss latest research discoveries and possible translations into medical practice.

During the EMIM congress, you will have the chance to meet top European scientists from various disciplines working in diverse fields of molecular imaging to discuss the latest research discoveries and possible translations into medical practice.

ENCITE is in the honoured position to have organised the following events in close partnership with ESMI:


The Workshop, "Introduction and hands-on training on 4D optical imaging"

18 June, 12.00 - 17.15 hrs
Leiden University Medical Center/NL

No registration fees are required.

Test the new photonIMAGER Optima!
Biospace lab presents the application fields of the new photonIMAGER Optima and discusses its technical capabilities through the advantages of real time imaging & of a modular approach for an acquisition system. This workshop, organised by the ENCITE partner BioSpace lab/FR will comprise two groups, with one working directly with the machine and animals while the other one attends a presentation and then vice versa.

Interested? Please register at: info@biospacelab.com

ECR 2011 - ENCITE Session "Visualisation of cell therapy meets clinical application"

6 March, 08:30 - 10:00 hrs
Room Z, Austria Centre Vienna/AT

ENCITE is proud to present cutting-edge developments of novel cell therapies pointing to clinical applications.
Within the European community of cell imaging, this advance is of specific interest as, according to the recent developments, novel imaging tools are absolutely pre-requisite for the understanding of therapeutic effects to patients. Three fine examples of the visualisation of cell therapy will show promising results.
Please have a look at the programme .


ENCITE Hands-On - Pancreatic islets preparation and visualisation (open to ENCITE members only)

31 January - 1 February
Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine, Prague/CZ

The learning objective is to obtain insight into the isolation and transplantation of pancreatic islets (PI), labelling techniques which can be used to label and visualise pancreatic islets by magnetic resonance imaging as well as magnetic resonance imaging of human and rat islets.
The practical work will deal with the preparation and labelling of rat pancreatic islets, the preparation of phantoms containing pancreatic islets and their scanning, as well as animals with transplanted pancreatic islets in vivo MRI.
