ISMRM Workshop on Molecular & Cellular MRI: Focus on Integration
Amsterdam, The Netherlands


The workshop program will focus on the integration of molecular and cellular imaging (MCI). Key topics include MCI’s implementation to visualize disease immunology, to evaluate therapeutic efficacy and develop cellular therapeutics, as well as the integration of novel MCI methods in clinical studies. The workshop will feature invited scientific presentations, proffered papers, a poster session and debates.

Target Audience

This workshop is designed for researchers and clinicians (oncologists, neurologists, cardiologists, internists, radiologists, pathologists, surgeons) developing contrast agents and MCI techniques or studying/treating diseases that could benefit from MCI; government regulatory experts; nonprofit and academic groups interested in early diagnosis and public health; and members of the ISMRM Molecular Imaging and MR in Drug Research study groups.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify preclinical research that benefits from MCI;
  • Describe MCI’s limitations and translational potential;
  • Review MCI’s advances in cardiovascular, oncological and neurological research;
  • Design contrast agents tailored towards specific MCI applications;
  • Explain MCI’s impact on clinical trial design; and
  • Recognize MCI’s significance in drug discovery.
