The University of Manitoba Small Animal and Materials Imaging Core Facility (SAMICF) provides capabilities for structural and functional imaging to Manitoba scientists. SAMICF services include bioluminescence, fluorescence, microCT, microPET, with SPECT/CT and ultrasound imaging to be added this fall. To celebrate our first year of full operation, SAMICF is organising a one day symposium "Small Animal Imaging: Advances and Applications" featuring talks from experts in each of the imaging modalities offered in the facility. The complete programme may be found on the SAMICF website
Attendance is open to all staff and students at the University and to external organisations. To register for this free event send an e-mail to the SAMICF Program Coordinator or register via the SAMICF Website.
