B-Q MINDED Summer School (26/08 - 30/08/2019)

This B-Q MINDED Summer School, powered by the Antwerp Summer University, provides an intensive, multidisciplinary course in the field of quantitative MRI (Q-MRI) for improving diagnosis of brain disorders. This course is part of a collaborative EU-funded project (MSCA ETN) European Training Network consisting of 15 Early Stage Researchers (PhD-positions) that aims to prepare a new generation of scientists who will turn MRI from a qualitative to a quantitative imaging technique.

The Summer School is open to non B-Q MINDED students as well. Special attention is given to the development of transferable skills that are essential for a successful professional career.


  • Basic Lab Skills in Computer Science (CUDA).

  • Outreach Strategy and drafting personal outreach plan.

  • Code of conduct for research integrity: theory and hands-on session.

  • Introduction to functional MRI (fMRI) and perfusion-weighted imaging (FWI).

  • Course and workshop on existing Q-MRI platforms.

  • MRI in recent studies - hands-on session.

  • Theory on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and AI in radiology and integration in medical imaging.
