The Role of Imaging in Drug Discovery, Drug Development and in Clinical Studies

08/03/2018 to 08/03/2018

This training event will offer lectures and workshops to understand the role for using imaging in drug discovery, drug development and as part of clinical studies. Participants will engage in group debate about the challenges of using imaging in modern drug studies and learn about the routes for resolving those challenges.

This event is subsidised by EMI and we are able to offer this event at a very good rate of £62.
Some delegates are exempt from payment.
PAY: Students- EMI and TMAT; ACFs, CLs pay from bursaries. Industry staff pay through company funding.
