Content description

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 (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.

Specific attention is given to the development of transferable skills that are essential for a successful professional career.
