This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
Magnetic Resonance imaging and spectroscopy in living systems (in vivo) is a key tool in biomedical discovery and clinical management. This meeting provides a unique, intellectual property protected, forum to learn about the newest developments in in vivo magnetic resonance. The 2020 meeting represents a milestone, the 20th anniversary of the In Vivo Magnetic Resonance GRC. In recognition, we will include stimulating discussions aimed at identifying the technology development and application needs of the next 20 years. Presentations will include new unpublished highlights in a range of MR topics, led by leaders in their fields. MR technologies to be discussed include the full spectrum needed to undertake state of the art MR experiments – such as gradients, magnets, RF technologies, MR sequences and data post-processing. Increased signal/noise, and development of new acquisition and processing protocols is making MR more sensitive to specific biochemical, physiological and disease phenotypes. As advances in technology go hand in hand with new and novel applications, we will also discuss evolving uses of MR. One strength of this conference is that it brings together researchers in multiple disciplines that are needed in MR development. A second is that this meeting encourages trainee involvement in discussions and provides excellent opportunities for networking. In addition to the trainee opportunities of the In Vivo Magnetic Resonance GRC meeting, there is now an associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS), organized and led by trainees over the preceding two days.
