BBL-CIBM-FCBG Research day 2022
We are delighted to announce the BBL-CIBM-FCBG Research Day 2022 will be held on June 1st in the Auditoire Adolphe Franceschetti, Centre Médical Universitaire (CMU), University of Geneva.
The CIBM Center for Biomedical Imaging launched the first annual MRI research day in 2008 with aim of gathering MRI experts from Geneva and the Lemanic region. In 2010, the event included other members of the CIBM community with MRI infrastructure such as the University of Geneva’s Brain and Behaviour Laboratory (BBL) and in 2018, the Human Neuroscience Platform at the Foundation Campus Biotech Geneva (FCBG).
The one-day event is an opportunity to review the status of ongoing MRI projects and activities, share experience, difficulties and benefit from a unique exchange platform between physicists, physicians, and neuroscientists.
This year, we have the great pleasure to inaugurate the newly upgraded 3T MRI scanner located at the BBL at the University of Geneva, one of the five founding institutions of the CIBM.
When registering, please take into account that there are two different tickets, one ticket for attending the talks and posters during the day and another ticket for the inauguration of the newly upgraded 3T MRI at the BBL. You can choose one or both depending on your attendance.
