The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Department of Radiology and the KKI F.M. Kirby Research Center invite you to their first locoregional MPI Workshop, organized by Adnan Bibic and Jeff W.M. Bulte, where they will discuss the opportunities that Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) can provide for molecular, cellular, and functional imaging of biological processes in living organisms.

This event serves two purposes:
1. Introduction to MPI: They will provide an overview of the emerging MPI technology and what it can do that other non-invasive imaging modalities cannot.
2. Sharing Insights: Existing users will present their cutting-edge research findings, with the goal to foster new collaborations and generating new ideas. Interested people from other institutions in the Mid-Atlantic region have been invited to participate.

What is MPI?
MPI is an emerging non-invasive imaging technique that directly detects magnetic nanoparticles acting as a “cold” tracer imaging agent. Similar to “hot” radiotracers used in nuclear medicine, it is quantitative providing specific information without background signal. It is ultra-sensitive, currently used here in rodents, and in further clinical development elsewhere.

What to Expect
1. Research Showcases: Hear about the latest advancements in MPI research.
2. Networking Opportunities: Connect with the regional MPI community.
3. Q&A Session: Engage with experts and share your thoughts.
4. Hands-On Demos: Experience MPI firsthand through demonstrations.

Join in person or stream online. Register by March 8, 2024 to secure your in-person spot. They have a maximum of 40 participants. If you can’t make it in person, all registered participants will be able to stream in except for the hands-on demo. Contact to register.
