Berlin Meeting 4 – 6 October 2014

October saw the second partner meeting of the COST programme funded MYO-MRI project which took place in Berlin, Germany. The meeting, which was attended by around 60 MRI experts, including MRI physicists, clinicians and computer scientists from across the world, took place just prior to the annual World Muscle Society Congress, also taking place this year in Berlin.

The second meeting saw the 4 Working Groups build on the work that started earlier this year, when the partners met in Milan, Italy in May. The meeting in Berlin was also attended by invited speakers from the US and Chile as well as Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) who had undertaken Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) funded by MYO-MRI. STSMs are important activities of the MYO-MRI project as they support ESRs in visiting a MYO-MRI partner institution of their choice to undertake a specific piece of work. MYO-MRI has funded four STSMs in its first year, and will look to support another four to six in 2015.
