Colloque en l’honneur des professeurs Carlos F.G.C. Geraldes et Lothar Helm - 12 décembre 2017 - Orléans

par Frapart - publié le , mis à jour le

A l’occasion de la conférence "LE STUDIUM® Conference" qui se déroule du 11 au 13 décembre 2017, un colloque spécial en l’honneur des Professeurs Carlos F.G.C. Geraldes (Université de Coïmbre, Portugal) et Lothar Helm (Ecole Poytechnique de Lausanne) se déroulera le 12 décembre. Il célébrera leurs carrières scientifiques exceptionnelles lors d’une session intitulée " 40 ans dans la chimie des lanthanides ".

Carlos Geraldes and Lothar Helm have made an immense contribution to the understanding and development of paramagnetic probes for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Through a very active participation in successive European COST Actions related to metals in medical imaging, their work hasled to novel, fundamental insights into the physical-chemical behavior of lanthanide-complexes in general and the paramagnetic relaxation theory of contrast agents in particular.

Today, Pr Lothar Helm is retiring from the position of titular professor and director of the NMR service of the Institute of Chemical Sciences and Engineering at EPFL, Lausanne (CH), while Pr Carlos Geraldes is leaving the post of full professor of Structural Biochemistry at the Department of Life Sciences of the University of Coimbra (PT). In this symposium, the guest speakers will overview the state of the art in the field of MR imaging agents and discuss future perspectives.
