NEW+++ 1st meeting of the British young ESMI group +++NEW


Free registration, cheap advance train tickets, free lunch - just get in touch with me to register via j.connell(at)

Date: Tuesday 28th March 2017 10.00 – 17.00

Venue: 25 Gordon Street, London WC1H 0AY


We are organising the first meeting of the British young ESMI group for PhD students and early career post-docs. The one-day meeting will be held in London on the week preceding the next EMIM in Cologne at 28th March 2017.

The meeting will give everyone a chance to practice their talks to a fresh audience of peers so that they perform better at the conference, be it an oral presentation or a poster.  Practice makes perfect and it will help show your work in the best light.  The EMIM is quite an expensive meeting on a very high scientific level, so making sure that you get the most out of it would be great!

If you have had an abstract for the EMIM accepted be invited to come to our meeting, present your work in an informal environment, and enlarge your network. 


Looking forward to meeting you in London (and Cologne).

Many thanks. John Connell, Louise Kiru, Ana Gomes Ramires”

yMICUK | Young Molecular Imaging Community in the UK

the 3rd young ESMI group!



The Young Molecular Imaging Community in the UK (yMICUK) aims to bring together young scientists (MSc/PhD students and early career post-docs) interested in the field of molecular imaging including PET, SPECT, MRI, bioluminescence, fluorescence and photoacoustic imaging, to offer an easy and informal entry into the imaging community. By sharing knowledge and experiences, young scientists will be able to complement their career progression. A collaborative environment will be fostered where the research of the members and their labs can be shared in a relaxed environment. Young scientists can reinforce the network of our local community in this field of scientific research.


We will host fun and creative events where our members may give presentations and each event will be followed by an informal discussion session focussing on various topics.  We will encourage our members to suggest additional topics that they would like to discuss in the next meeting.  Advertising for membership will begin at the 2nd Preclinical Nuclear Imaging Symposium (9th November 2015) and at the meeting of the 21st Annual Scientific Meeting of the British Chapter of ISMRM (9th-11th September 2015), where representatives of all of the preclinical imaging institutions in the UK will be in attendance. We will plan for the first meeting to be towards the end of 2016.


yMICUK will promote the formation of a UK network of young scientists’ working in the field of imaging science and attract its members to the ESMI in order to strengthen the imaging cmmunity in Europe.
