Imaging Conference 2015

5th Annual Hopkins Imaging Conference

In order to connect imaging researchers at Johns Hopkins University and showcase local imaging research, the 5th Annual Hopkins Imaging Conference will be held on October 26th, 2015 in the Tilghman Auditorium and Turner Concourse on the Johns Hopkins East Baltimore Campus.  In addition, the conference will feature lectures by distinguished imaging faculty, a Happy Hour with poster presentations, and more. The conference is open to all researchers and clinicians at every level (students, postdocs, faculty, staff, etc.). Anyone interested in imaging research is welcome to come!
