Decade of discovery: Celebrating 10 years of 7-Tesla MRI at Spinoza Centre for Neuroimaging

17 June 2024

At the Spinoza Centre for Neuroimaging advanced technology collides with innovative neuro- and clinical sciences.

The Spinoza Centre for Neuroimaging is a core research facility and knowledge hub of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the Amsterdam University Medical Center – locations AMC and VUmc.

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Spinoza Centre, world-leading experts will discuss innovations in 7 Tesla MRI technology, cognitive neuroscience and clinical sciences.

We are delighted to invite you to celebrate our 10th anniversary with us. Please register for the symposium using the link below. If you have already registered via the Philips 7T user meeting, you don’t have to register again.
