PET Pharmacokinetics Course


The PET Pharmacokinetics Course will be held July 7th – 9th, 2018 in London. The course will take place just prior to NRM 2018 (London, July 9th – 12th 2018). Registration for the course will be separate from the NRM conference registration.

The PET Pharmacokinetics Course looks back at a history of more than 20 years and has evolved continuously during this time. It is designed for anyone who would like to gain a better understanding of the principles involved in PET kinetic modeling and analysis. It is appropriate for physicians, researchers with a wide range of backgrounds, including medicine, physics, chemistry, neuroscience, and pharmacology as well as for graduate students. Hands-on computer exercises are an integral part of the course concept and complement the lectures.
