Dr. Jochen Hammes was honoured with a travel grant during the 21. International Congress of the Society for Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders held between June 4-8, 2017 in Vancouver, Canada. He gratefully received US$ 1000 for his work on predicting impulsive behaviour under dopaminergic therapy in Parkinson patients using F-18-DOPA-PET.

Dr. Gérard N. Bischof receives a travel grant to present his work on the relationship between CSF markers of p-tau and t-tau to in vivo tau deposition as measured by PET in typical and atypical Alzheimer’s disease at the annual meeting of the Society for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) in Denver, USA.

The medical faculty awards Dr. Jochen Hammes with a 12-month stipend for a research rotation at the MMNI lab to work on software-assisted PET analysis in neurodegenerative diseases.
Prof. Thilo van Eimeren will coordinate a Brain Imaging Working Group aiming to harmonize brain imaging approaches in atypical parkinsonian disorders. The project will be funded by the EU Joint Programme for Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND).

Every year, the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging chooses an image that exemplifies the most promising advances in the field in order to detect diseases, aid diagnosis or select appropriate treatment strategies for patients. For this year’s annual meeting held in San Diego, the reviewers had to vote from 2200 submitted abstracts. We are happy and proud to announce that this year’s Image of the Year award goes to our dear member Dr. Gérard Bischof for his work entitled: “Novel PET imaging demonstrates relationship between Tau bildup and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s patients.”

The medical faculty awards Kathrin Giehl an IPaK travel grant in the context of the ipid4all-application (DAAD) of the Albertus Magnus Graduate Center in order to present her work on T1-assisted tau-PET image preprocessing at the 22nd annual meeting of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping in Geneva, Switzerland.
The Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) honours Dr. Gérard N. Bischof’s work on the contribution of tau to neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease with a Merit Abstract Award during their 22nd annual meeting in Geneva, Switzerland.
