The EXCITE Summer School on Biomedical Imaging is dedicated to teaching the basics of biomedical imaging alongside an overview of applications which are vital to understand recent advances and current challenges in biological and medical imaging. A range of cutting-edge techniques and analysis tools are discussed. Leading scientists present lectures and hold practical sessions.
The summer school will provide different tracks for participants with a background in life sciences and physical sciences, respectively. The students will have lectures in the morning and hands-on sessions in the afternoon. The highlight is a full-day project in a topic of choice within an academic institution or institute. The program is rounded off with the EXCITE Symposium and an industry day.
The school follows a challenging and demanding schedule. It addresses excellent MSc and PhD students as well as scientists working in the industry. We admit around 60-80 participants. Students who have not yet started a PhD program may apply for a stipend.
The EXCITE summer school is dedicated to teaching the basics and wider context necessary to understand recent advances and current challenges in biological and medical imaging. Cutting-edge techniques using a wide range of image-formation mechanisms — including magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, infrared and optical microscopy, electron microscopy and X-ray imaging — will be discussed, with a focus on multimodal and multiscale imaging methods, together with supporting technologies such as computer-aided image analysis and modelling.
The school takes two weeks and awards 4 ECTS upon passing a written exam at the end of the second week.
CHF 250: includes coffee, coffee breaks, social event and buffet lunches.
International students who have not yet started a PhD-program are eligible to apply for a stipend (500 CHF)
