About

After a successful first year of bringing together researchers around the world, in an accessible format, we will be hosting a second iteration this year! This free virtual conference will be hosted over Zoom between November 29th and December 1st, 2023. The conference aims to highlight the latest advances in quantitative MRI methodology, how they are being validated, and to present how these novel tools are being used to learn about different neurodegenerative conditions.

Registration and Abstract Submission

Submission deadline for the 2023 conference is October 15th.

 Register for the conference to receive information about the conference (zoom links, final program) or select register for the conference and submit an abstract to receive information and apply to present at the Quantitative MRI in Neurodegeneration Virtual Symposium.

 

Trainees are invited to submit an abstract to present their work on qMRI, with preference given to abstrasts on applications in neurodegeneration and for validation of metrics using simulations, histology, and/or animal models. Selected abstracts will give a 10 min talk during the virtual conference!

Accepted abstracts will be notified at the end of October.
