Molecular imaging has made great progress as a key technology for elucidating life phenomena in biology and for precise diagnosis of various diseases in medicine. Molecular imaging encompasses a wide variety of modalities such as radionuclide, magnetic resonance, ultrasound, and optical imaging technologies which have been developed based on interdisciplinary research among chemistry, biology, physics, information technology, and of course medicine. Furthermore, it also provides important and practical clues for the development of novel drugs and treatment technologies for more precise, personalized medicine.

In this symposium, world-leading scientists who have been developing various conceptually novel and practical medical technologies and drugs will gather in one place to showcase their cutting-edge technologies, and discuss the future direction of molecular imaging-based drug development.

The organizing committee cordially invites you to attend the symposium to exchange ideas and expertise with leading scientists in their respective fields. We look forward to seeing you in Osaka in January 2024.
