EMIM 2019 Plenary Speakers

From the cell to the human body...

Modern molecular imaging techniques cover the full range of length scales, from imaging protein molecules in cells using cryo-electron microscopy to imaging metabolites in the human body using positron emission tomography. The meeting will feature a series of plenary lectures, from leading practitioners in their respective fields, who will take us on this path from the cell to the human body.
