25th-28th September, 2019 -“Imaging of diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers in Oncology”
The "Tumour targeting, Imaging, radiotherapies network" of the Cancéropôle Grand-Ouest organizes its thirteenth international workshop dedicated to young researchers (PhD Students and Post-Docs) even so experienced researchers are invited to participate, which will take place from the 25th to 28th of September 2019 in Le Bono, West of France.

The 13th international workshop edition entitled “Imaging of diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers in Oncology“ will confront the points of view and problems of the various disciplines, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Medicine, working for the development of imaging in Oncology.
This workshop will focus on the latest advances in imaging techniques: PET, SPECT, MRI, US, Infra-red Bioluminescence, Fluorescence, Photoacoustic, CyTof Imaging, Microscopy, Spectroscopy and Raman Imaging. It aims to address innovative developments in chemistry (synthesis of tracers, chelates, contrast agents, fluorescent probes, etc.), biology (identification of new tumour targets, etc.) and physics (instrumentation, methodological aspects of image analysis, radiomics ...), through the following sessions:
Session 1: Contribution of imaging in diagnosis
Session 2: Contribution of imaging in therapeutic follow-up and evaluation
Session 3: Emerging imaging technologies
Plenary lectures will be given by experts in the different scientific fields addressed by the workshop. A number of selected oral presentations given by young researchers will complete the different scientific sessions. This workshop aims at sharing scientific results and at facilitating exchanges between experienced and young researchers in a fast advancing field.
To stimulate intense discussions between young and senior scientists, the total attendance is limited to a maximum of 65 persons.
30 travel grant awards are available for the young selected researchers (PhD students and Post-Doctoral scientists). Each award consists of complimentary registration to the workshop, accommodation expenses, and up to 250€ contribution to travel expenses.

This event will take place in the “Manoir de Kerdréan” in Le Bono, in the Gulf of Morbihan, at about two hours from Nantes in West of France.
Young researchers are asked to submit an abstract presenting their current research projects and results for one of the three scientific sessions of the workshop. Abstract must be in English and contain a maximum of 300 words. A template is available on the website at http://www.cgo-workshop-vecto.fr/. Abstracts will be selected on scientific quality and pertinence. Abstracts not relevant to this workshop will be rejected. The scientific committee will review all submitted abstracts and will determine which abstracts will be presented orally. Due to the limitation of the number of attendees, early registration and abstract submission are strongly advised. Please, submit your abstract before June 14th, 2019.
