The topics are experimental design, data gathering, and processing in MRS, as well as, structural and functional MRI in both humans and rodents. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to understand the physical principles of MRI and MRS, design a translational study, establish MRI and MRS acquisition protocols, and analyze results for their research interests. Additionally, they will be able to perform MRI, MRS, and DWI, as well as perform simple quantification and modelling on provided data. The program will also provide an opportunity for students to work on hands-on exercises and questions in groups, fostering interdisciplinary interaction and collaboration.

This is a great opportunity to learn and enhance your skills in the field of MRI and MRS.
