AMYPAD presents at NRM2018

The ‘Mapping Neuroreceptors at Work’ (NRM18) conference took place at KCL Waterloo Campus in London (UK) from 9 to 12 July. The XII International Symposium of Functional Neuroreceptor Mapping of the Living Brain gathered around 300 delegates and brain researchers from around the globe to present and discuss the latest advances of the living human brain.

The programme included an opening lecture on “The neurobiology of beauty” (Prof S. Zeki, University College London), a special lecture on “Of psychotic mice and men” (Prof. O. Howes, King’s College London/Imperial College London) and seven scientific sessions with 56 oral and 144 poster presentations. Two rapid-fire sessions (2 minutes oral presentation) were also organised to maximise exposure of the submitted abstracts. These 20 rapid-fire talks were also presented as a poster at the poster session.

We were glad than three AMYPAD abstracts have been accepted:

  • Amyloid Staging Models: Semi-Quantitative versus Quantitative Measures, Lyduine E. Collij (VUmc) – poster presentation
  • Optimized coffee-break protocols for quantitative [18F]flutemetamol and [18F]florbetaben studies, Fiona Heeman (VUmc) – poster presentation
  • Event-based modeling of the temporal ordering of regional β-amyloid deposition in the brain, Lyduine E. Collij (VUmc) – oral presentation.

If you are curious, you can download the two posters on the AMYPAD website and the book of abstracts here

The next edition will take place in Montreal.
