Joint symposium supported by Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and Academy of Finland. Turku PET Centre, Turku, Finland (June 6-8, 2022)
PET imaging research is underway on various organs throughout the body in metabolic diseases including diabetes and obesity. The purpose of this study is to understand the various pathological conditions of the disease by cross-cutting and strategically developing and applying the following four basic technologies by experts from various fields in both Japan and Finland.
This seminar has been planned to to take place in Turku (Finland), June 6-8, 2022.
