Over the past years, Magnetic Resonance (MR) has evolved into a field that brings together scientists from physics, biology, chemistry, and engineering to push the limits of technology and answer fundamental questions in physiology. The next 20 years will no doubt bring about change to the way we approach MR research, but will also see an emerging new generation of MR scientists – the early career scientists of today.
We invite all early career scientists, graduate students, and postdocs of the MR community, to participate in the In Vivo Magnetic Resonance Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). In this high-energy two-day seminar, attendees will discuss the current and future direction of cutting-edge topics – such as radiofrequency coil development, image reconstruction, molecular imaging, and deep learning – and present their work in an interactive, engaging, and trainee-focused environment.
In addition to talks by young scientists, join us for dynamic poster sessions and a mentorship panel featuring graduates that have chosen different career trajectories, including industry, academia, and start-ups. With the ever-changing field of MR and with our fellow trainee scientists spread all across the globe, we hope that this seminar also brings to you a sense of community. Our different training backgrounds bring something very unique to our interdisciplinary field of MR. And perhaps, besides the memories of a victorious foosball game after the scientific sessions, you take home with you a revolutionary idea that will shape the future of MR.
The seminar will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS, either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.
The seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 18, 2020. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Information section above.
Gordon Research Seminars are 2-day meetings which take place on the Saturday and Sunday just prior to the start of the associated GRC. The GRS opens with a 1-hour introductory session on Saturday afternoon, followed by a poster session, dinner and a 2-hour session in the evening. Sunday morning begins with breakfast and is followed by another 2-hour session, a second poster session, and lunch. A final 1-hour session takes place just after lunch, and the associated GRC begins later that evening.
