Alavi-Bradley Symposium on Molecular Imaging and Theranostics
The University of Maryland School of Medicine’s Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine was pleased to present the inaugural Alavi-Bradley Symposium on Molecular Imaging and Theranostics on May 24, 2022.
This symposium was made possible by a generous donation from Dr. Abass Alavi and his wife, Dr. Jane Alavi. The goal of the symposium is to bring together physicians, scientists, and students interested in advancing molecular imaging and developing theranostic agents and applications for image-guided therapy. Featuring a keynote address by Dr. Alavi himself and presentations by Dr. Zaver Bhujwalla and Dr. Dan Vigernon as plenary speakers, the symposium offered a series of lectures on a wide range of topics of molecular imaging and theranostics.
In particular junior-level participants were encouraged to submit abstracts with an opportunity to compete for awards. Last but not least, the symposium provided ample opportunities for formal and informal discussions and networking with experts in molecular imaging.
CME credit was offered.
Poster presentations provided the opportunity for attendees to showcase their research and network with other symposium participants. Attendees were encouraged to submit abstracts for poster presentations and opt-in to have their abstracts scored. Those that received the best scores were invited to give oral presentations at the symposium.
Awards were given for outstanding abstracts.
