Conference Description

Magnetic resonance (MR) techniques provide powerful tools for studying living systems, from imaging of anatomy and metabolic function to detection and characterization of disease processes, and on spatial scales from individual cells to whole organs. The field of in vivo MR is dynamic and interdisciplinary, bringing together scientists with backgrounds in physics, chemistry, engineering, biology and medicine. This conference focuses on the latest developments in both methodology and applications, providing a unique venue for exchanging ideas and developing collaborations. Some topics that have been covered include: novel approaches for creating, detecting, and localizing the MR signal; applications of in vivo spectroscopy in disease and basic studies of metabolism; physical, chemical and biological mechanisms that affect the MR signal in vivo; development of new agents and approaches for manipulating the MR signal and contrast; functional MRI to study brain activation, blood flow and metabolism; and cellular function, from metabolism to gene expression to migration.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "In Vivo Magnetic Resonance" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
