Magnetic Particle Imaging Canvasing the Globe at WMIC 2018

Global representation of the scientific community pioneering magnetic particle imaging will be present at WMIC 2018! 


MPI Education Session:

Wed. Sept. 12 from 11:00am - 12:30pm
Organized by the MPI Interest Group lead by Drs. John Hazle and Steven Conolly

Featuring expert presentations by:
Dr. Paula Foster, Robarts Research Insitute: Molecular and cellular imaging, using MRI, MPI and other techniques
Dr. Hamed Arami, Stanford University: MPI & SPIO chemistry
Xinyi Zhou, UC Berkeley: MPI Applications Overview

Live MPI Demo and Lunch:
Wed. Sept. 12 from 12:30pm - 1:30pm
Join us for lunch right after the MPI education session (along with an MPI beer mug and pub crawl drink ticket!) as we dive into the development of the MPI technology and an overview of ongoing projects around the world.  Dr. Patrick Goodwill will also remote into a live MPI system and run scans in real time. 
This will be the only sponsored lunch that day so space will be VERY limited, sign up here! 

Did someone say FREE beer at WMIC??? We sure did and the first one is on us! September 12th WMIC pub crawl is a great opportunity to schmooze with thought leaders in molecular imaging. Let Magnetic Insight buy your first beer in a commemorative MPI beer mug. Join the MPI Interest Group Luncheon September 12th at 12:30 and we will set you up for the Pub Crawl later that evening!  Make sure to register here
Michigan State University welcomes the MOMENTUM MPI system at the new IQ facility

Proud MSU team fully trained and armed with their new MOMENTUM magnetic particle imaging system. The MOMENTUM MPI system resides within the new 130,000 square foot, state of the art research facility bringing together engineers and basic science researchers with medical researchers to help solve some of the world’s biggest challenges.
