MediSens is keen to promote collaboration between academia and clinical research, whereby leading academics are given the opportunity to share their research on the agenda and to join us at reduced rates as conference attendees.
Academic presentations cover personalised medicine and the role of imaging, image-guided surgery and the role of PET image reconstruction, and more.
The Institute of Cancer Research are also supportive of MediSens, with Dimitra Darambara taking on a leading advisory role and chairing the first day’s conference, plus we are privileged to welcome Professor Uwe Oelfke as our opening keynote on Day 2 (see details in highlights below)
