Measuring metabolism in the human brain: Translational challenges and opportunities

For the first time, the K. G. Jebsens Centre for Alzheimer’s Disease (JCA), the Norwegian Center for Headache Research (NorHead) and the Norwegian 7T MR Center will host a two-day seminar in translational neurometabolism.

The seminar will feature excellent speakers who are international experts in their fields. They will cover a range of topics, including:

  • State-of-the art magnetic resonance spectroscopy of the human brain: 1H MRS, 31P MRS, 2H MRS, MRSI, DW-MRS, fMRS
  • Using PET to study metabolism in the human brain
  • 13C MRS and genetic tools to study brain metabolism in animals and neural cell culture
  • Multi-cellular brain energy metabolism – the astrocyte-neuron lactate shuttle
  • Neurometabolism in neurodegenerative diseases
  • Neurometabolism in headache disorders
  • Clinical applications of magnetic resonance spectroscopy

The seminar is open to everyone with a research or clinical interest in brain metabolism. Learn more and register here.

The event is finished.
