Education and courses

Prof. Van der Linden and Prof. Verhoye are lecturers of different course modules of the University of Antwerp.
In addition, the Bio-Imaging Lab is actively involved in a European training program via ESMI.


Prof. Van der Linden and prof. Verhoye are lecturers of different course modules of the University of Antwerp within the bachelor and master programmes of biomedical sciences, veterinary sciences and physics.  They teach the bachelor courses Physics  (Ba Veterinary),  Data Collection and Processing  & Studium generale in biomedical sciences (Ba BMS), they exploit their expertise in small animal neuro-imaging as lecturers of different courses with as learning outcomes the physical principles of imaging, image reconstruction and clinical & preclinical applications of the different biomedical imaging modalities:  Radio protection and introduction to medical imaging (Ba VetS) ,  Biomedical imaging techniques  (Ma Phys), Principles of in vivo biomedical imaging, preclinical and clinical studies  & System Neuroscience (Ma BMS), Preclinical and clinical imaging with focus on neurology (Ma BMS & Ma Phys).   They organize dedicated MRI hands-on training giving hands on insight in how image contrasts can be acquired (technically) and what are the underlying physiological or anatomical mechanisms for each image contrast. This training – being part of the Ma Molecular Imaging BMS programme at UA -, is also organised within the European FP7 Project InMind, Imaging of Neuroinflammation in Neurodegenerative Diseases.  The Bio-Imaging Lab is also open to guide –imaging-  master thesis projects, and responsible for the Project Proposal at UA.
 
European training program (ESMI)
Bio-Imaging Lab takes part in the organization and establishment of the European Doctoral School Molecular Imaging, an integrated European doctoral programme leading to a double or joint PhD degree in Molecular Imaging.  They participate in the European Master of Comparative Morphology.
