& online

This hybrid event (online & in-person), initiated by the Werner Siemens Imaging Center, honors the excellent contributions of Prof. Mikhail Shapiro – awarded this year with the "New Horizons Fellowship" of the Excellence Strategy at the University of Tübingen. His laboratory has developed the first gene-encoded reporter genes for ultrasound imaging with single-cell resolution and discovered fundamental biophysical, biomedical, and biochemical mechanisms with application in oncology and neurology.

Several excellent speakers such as Prof. Mickaël Tanter from ESPCI Paris, Prof. David Maresca from Delft University of Technology, Prof. Gil Westmeyer from Technische Universität München, Prof. Leif Schröder from DKFZ German Cancer Research Center, Prof. Lisa Maier from CMFI and many more will participate!

The symposium will be followed by the workshop "Gene-encoded Gas Vesicles for Molecular Focused Ultrasound Imaging in cells" on October 27, 2022.
