The PET Pharmacokinetics Course will be held July 1 – 3, 2019 in Hamamatsu. The course will take place just prior to BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2019 (Yokohama, July 4 – 7 2019). Registration for the course is separate from the BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2019 conference registration. It is designed for anyone who would like to gain a better understanding of the principles involved in PET kinetic modeling and analysis. It is appropriate for researchers with a wide range of backgrounds as well as for graduate students.
PET Pharmacokinetics Course Registration is separated from Congress Registration. If you would like to participate both, please make your registration at each registration system. Thank you for your understanding.
We really welcome your early registration!

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.
Hamamatsu can be conveniently reached by Shinkansen bullet train (Approx. an hour and a half from JR Tokyo station to JR Hamamatsu station).
