WELCOME TO WMIC VIRTUAL 2020

The World Molecular Imaging Society (WMIS) is dedicated to supporting Molecular Imaging (MI) research.
That’s why this year the WMIS Board of Trustees has voted to offer you FREE access to the WMIC Virtual 2020.
We invite people from around the world to join us as we explore the possibilities of bridging biology and molecular imaging. There is no financial obligation. This means you simply register for the meeting and you will have access to all the WMIC offerings. We look forward to seeing you online October 7-9, 2020.

OVER 500 ORAL AND POSTER PRESENTATIONS

This year the WMIS has focused on bridging the core disciplines of Molecular Imaging and Biology. The outcome is a cutting-edge program that merges early discovery with clinical translation. You will hear from scientific programs around the world as they showcase how their programs are pushing the boundaries of science to advance new discoveries in healthcare in the following categories: 

• Neuroscience
• Cardiovascular and Pulmonary
• Oncology
• New Chemistry and Biology and Bioengineering
• Computational Data Science
• Systemic Disease
• Immunology, Inflammation & Infection
• Instrumentation

E-POSTERS OFFER MORE ONLINE

Over 400 poster presentations will be given by scientists worldwide to showcase their latest science and research. The poster sessions are an important platform for scientific exchange and an excellent opportunity to find new collaborations. This year during the WMIC Virtual Congress, poster presenters will have the option to offer you a video overview with PowerPoint presentations, which will enhance the traditional poster presentation. These poster sessions will be available prior to the WMIC Virtual Congress, enabling you to schedule a time in advance to chat and meet with the authors.

NETWORKING

Networking and building new relationships are key components to a successful WMIC, so we decided to amp it up with the Virtual WMIC. Our goal is for you to build your network, drive collaboration, stay up-to-date, and share best practices. You will be able to interact with interest groups in group discussions, meet presenters, chat with poster presenters, meet fellows, and much more. 

Meet the Program Committee

The WMIS Program Committee is currently focused on creating an exceptional scientific program that will meet the high expectations of the live meeting.
WMIS remains committed to creating a global platform to showcase the science, and we believe there are unique and safe ways to collaborate virtually.
