Animal Imaging Workshop

26 Aug 2016
Centre for Advanced Imaging, UQ

Now that I know what my particles do in cells, what's next?

  • Optical imaging
  • Positron emission tomography (PET)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Multi-spectral optoacoustic tomography (MSOT)

Overview of topics:

  • How do I optimise my nanomaterials for imaging?
  • What questions can I answer with each modality?
  • Which modality should I choose?
  • Practical sessions with each instrument
  • What facilities and resources are available to me?
  • How do I prepare my samples?
  • What types of data are obtained in an animal imaging experiment?
  • Mouse models
  • Ethics
  • Discussion time with facility managers

The workshop runs from 10am until 5pm and will be followed by a BBQ and drinks. A program and flyer for the day provides further information.

There is limited travel support from the CBNS available to attend this workshop. Please indicate when registering if you would like to be considered for a supported place.


Space is limited so registration is essential. Catering is provided by the Centre for Advanced Imaging, UQ.

This workshop is an activity of the CBNS Education Committee, organised by UQ node representative Zach Houston.

Our thanks to UQ's Centre for Advanced Imaging for running the workshop and providing the experts and expertise.
