Annual Symposium Training

Each year the Advanced Imaging Research Center and The National Center for Research Resources, which was recently dissolved and reorganized under the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), host a symposium on a topic relevant to work being carried out at the Center. The purpose of the symposium is to provide information on research activities and training opportunities.

Faculty, research staff, and undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral students are all welcome and encouraged to attend.

Additional Training Opportunities

Course on 13C/ 2H Methods

A hands-on course conducted over 3-4 days is available on request. The student has the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of an experiment, from designing protocols to data analysis and interpretation. The student will observe the procedures for handling the preparation, processing samples, collecting NMR data, performing spectral analysis and finishing with applying metabolic models. Instruction in the use of software required at various stages is available. The course will be tailored to individual needs as closely as possible.
