2023 PET-RTRC Annual Workshops & Scientific Session

February 21 - 23, 2023

Please join us for the PET Radiotracer Translation and Resource Center (PET-RTRC) Workshops & Scientific Session. Registration is now open for the annual event, hosted by Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The PET-RTRC leverages the university’s expertise in PET radiotracer design, development, training and use with that of research groups throughout the country who are studying molecular and cellular processes of interest to facilitate the development and dissemination of novel PET radiotracers.




Please see below for more information about our upcoming regulatory and theranostics workshops and scientific session. For more information or questions about the schedule, please contact Michelle Hoelscher.
