PET Pharmacokinetics Course – Dresden 2017
About The Course
The PET Pharmacokinetics Course will be held March 29th – 31st, 2017 in Dresden (about 190 km south of Berlin). The course will take place just prior to BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2017 (Berlin, Germany, April 1st – 4th, 2017). Registration for the course will be separate from the BRAIN conference registration.
The PET Pharmacokinetics Course looks back at a history of more than 20 years and has evolved continuously during this time. It is designed for anyone who would like to gain a better understanding of the principles involved in PET kinetic modeling and analysis. It is appropriate for physicians, researchers with a wide range of backgrounds, including medicine, physics, chemistry, neuroscience, and pharmacology as well as for graduate students. Hands-on computer exercises are an integral part of the course concept and complement the lectures. An accompanying 130 p. course manual summarizing and augmenting the lectures is provided as well.
