NeuRA MRI Seminar Series 2017

The NeuRA MRI seminar series will provide researchers with the opportunity to present their work-in-progress and network.

We would like the seminar series to represent the cross-disciplinary scope of MRI research currently being undertaken across the NeuRA/UNSW precinct by including pre-clinical and clinical sciences, as well as more fundamental methodological topics relating to methods of acquisition and analysis. We eventually intend to invite MRI researchers from other Australian institutions.

The seminar series will represent a unique and critical knowledge platform where junior and more senior researchers can exchange ideas about current research into MRI techniques and applications.

We propose a unique format for constructive discussion about MRI research. Presenters are encouraged to concentrate on the details of their MRI acquisition parameters, types of sequences and innovative MRI methods, and provide an in-depth discussion of the strengths and limitations of methods of analysis (i.e., processing and statistical) beyond what is typical in presentations of MRI data in biomedical or clinical journals.

The seminar will take place twice a month between 12 and 1pm in the seminar room of NeuRA. The first seminar is scheduled for Tuesday 28th of March 2017. Talks will last for 40 minutes followed by a 20-minute discussion to promote constructive exchange. Please see below for dates.

Please contact us if you wish to participate and present your work.
