June 24-29, 2012: NCI Cancer Research Imaging Camp: An Educational Opportunity for Basic Cancer Researchers
Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn.
Application deadline: February 10, 2012
Overview: Postdoctoral fellows and early career-level faculty in fields related to basic cancer biology are invited to apply for a special intensive course on in vivo imaging techniques. Through lectures and hands-on laboratory sessions, participants will gain experience with a wide range of imaging modalities, including advanced optical imaging, MRI, PET, SPECT, CT, and ultrasound. After this course, participants will be able to select and apply the appropriate in vivo imaging technique necessary to investigate a biological hypothesis and to interpret the resulting imaging data. Attendance is strictly limited to invited participants. Contact: Anne Menkens, Ph.D., NCI Cancer Imaging Program, firstname.lastname@example.org.
