    • For chemists, pharmacists and biologists: the present state-of-the-art of molecular imaging agents, work-in-progress and future developments.
    • And for medical specialists: the benefit to clinic and/or research from the developments in a wide range of molecular imaging agents as an add-on to state-of-the-art (hybrid) preclinical and clinical imaging facilities.



    • An international panel of experts from different fields in clinic research (imaging special­ists, clinicians, biologists, chemists, pharmacists) will discuss recent developments and future perspectives
    • .A lecture by Ben Feringa, winner of the Nobel Prize  in Chemistry 2016
    • The Wijnberg and Vaalburg Lectures will honor pioneers in the field.
    • Poster sessions allowing all participants to present recent work with 3 prizes by an inde­pendent committee. 
    • The symposium will be followed by a post-congress on “Photopharmacology”, which can be attended free of charge.
