NeuRA MRI Seminar Series 2018

The NeuRA MRI seminar series provides researchers with the opportunity to present cutting edges pre-clinical, clinical and basic work based on MRI techniques.

The seminar series aims to represent the cross-disciplinary scope of MRI research currently being undertaken across the NeuRA/UNSW precinct as well as national and international researchers by including pre-clinical and clinical sciences, as well as more fundamental methodological topics relating to methods of acquisition and analysis.

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

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).

The seminar takes place every two months between 12 and 1pm in the John and Betty Lynch NeuRA seminar room, NeuRA, Level 3.  Talks last around 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.
