We are delighted to announce that the University will be hosting this year’s annual Dementia MRI conference.

The conference, which will be hosted at the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC), will explore the role of MRI in risk identification, early diagnosis and clinical trials.

Following the success of the conference in Bristol last year, CUBRIC invites MRI scientists, dementia researchers and healthcare professionals to attend this year’s event at Cardiff University on 22-23 May 2017.

The conference is organised by imaging and clinical dementia scientists from Universities of Cardiff, Bristol and Cambridge, with a primary focus on the role of MRI in early diagnosis, risk identification and clinical trials. The programme will include presentations about the latest developments in MR technologies, including white matter imaging, and their applications to dementia research.

Junior scientists are also encouraged to submit their work for presentation across the board of dementia research, including work into other neurodegenerative dementias such as Huntington’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

The conference is supported by Alzheimer's Research UK and The Guarantors of Brain.

The deadline for registration, abstract submission and securing tickets for the evening meal is 15 April 2017. Abstracts are to be submitted via email to DementiaMRI2017@cardiff.ac.uk. Poster presentations and talks will be announced on 1st May 2017.
