UCL will host a symposium at the Birkbeck Clore Management Centre which will focus on the development of analysis methods for PET/MRI. The symposium is directed especially to persons who have an interest in the development of novel methods of analysis using PET/MRI and should be of interest to scientific staff in centres establishing PET/MRI in the UK.

Dates: 21-23 September, 2016
Venue: Birkbeck, University of London, Clore Management Centre, Malet Street, Bloomsbury, London WC1E 7HX
