About the workshop

The InBrain Workshop: Advanced Brain Imaging will be held in Ribeirão Preto, SP, Brazil, from February 13th to 15th, 2020.

The workshop aims to gather researchers, students (both at graduate and undergraduate levels) and clinical professionals working in quantitative magnetic resonance imaging in the brain, with interest in methods development and its clinical applications. The main goal of the event is to update the state of art in the related topics, facilitate the communication and collaboration of researchers and enhance the research level in the Brazilian scientific community.

The Workshop is an initiative of the InBrain Lab, which is a research group in the Department of Physics of the University of São Paulo in Ribeirão Preto. The InBrain Lab is mostly composed by Physicists and Medical Physicists in close collaboration with the Clinical Hospital of Ribeirão Preto. The InBrain Workshop is also endorsed by the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM), and will feature prominent speakers.
