UCSF Radiology and Biomedical Imaging to Host 16th Annual Imaging Research Symposium on October 8

The UC San Francisco Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging is looking forward to our 16th Annual Imaging Research Symposium on Tuesday, October 8, 2019. The symposium is open to all in the UCSF and scientific communities. It features speaker presentations and a scientific poster session to highlight all of the innovative research happening in the department.

“The annual research symposium shows the broad diversity of UCSF Radiology research from basic science to clinical scholarship, covering chemistry, MRI physics, image processing, artificial intelligence and a lot more," says faculty member Valentina Pedoia, PhD, one of the Symposium’s co-scientific organizers.

“The annual research symposium is a great opportunity to hear about research progress here at UCSF,” says Robert Flavell, MD, PhD, co-scientific organizer and section chief, Molecular Imaging and Therapeutics. “There is a great lineup of speakers including a variety of topics ranging from basic science to clinical studies, and a record number of poster presentations."

The symposium takes place at the Mission Bay Conference Center. Speaker presentations will take place from 1 pm – 4:30 pm followed by a comprehensive poster session featuring the department’s research, as well as awards for best podium presentation, and best poster presentation. One highlight of the awards portion is the Hasegawa Award which honors the memory of Bruce Hasegawa, PhD, a distinguished scientist, teacher and mentor whose UCSF research career focused on medical physics and bioengineering. The research done by Hasegawa awardees continues Dr. Hasegawa’s vision. At the core of his work was the desire to improve the ability to diagnose and treat disease through improved imaging techniques and modalities.
