Description: This workshop aims to present theoretical and practical aspects of preclinical
models’ imaging. The workshop provides a general overview of licensing and
operating an imaging facility for rodent models, as well as specific details for
selecting and applying imaging modalities for various models. The practical part
offers training in mouse handling for imaging projects and operating imaging
equipment.
Places for practical training will be reserved on a first come, first-served basis.
Only inanimate models will be used for training.
