Details of the course program and tutors will be announced soon.


The PET Pharmacokinetics Course has been held for most years, since the early 1990s. Originally, the meeting was held in Europe, first in Germany, then for several years at the Paul Scherrer Institut in Switzerland, hosted by Nico Leenders. Starting in conjunction with Brain99 in Copenhagen, the course has moved to different sites (hosted in the city of one of the tutors), always being held in close proximity either to the Brain/Brain PET meetings, the Neuro Receptor Mapping (or NRM) meetings, or occasionally an IEEE or other related meeting.


In order to book your accommodation please approach the hotels directly.
Hotel Crown Palais Hamamatsu has a special block for the PET PK course, offering the possibility for all participants to stay in the same hotel at a reasonable rate. It is recommended that interested participants book this hotel during the course. Alternatively, there are other hotels of all categories not too far away from the venue.
