4th UK Dementia MRI Conference
We are pleased to announce that the 4th UK Dementia MRI Conference will take place at St. Anne’s College, University of Oxford on 1st July 2019. This conference will build on three successful prior meetings, which have provided a much-needed platform for clinicians and researchers to discuss the latest advances and challenges in dementia neuroimaging. This year, we have chosen to focus the conference on leading multi-site and big data dementia imaging initiatives in the UK and Europe.

The meeting will feature four sessions centred around ‘Multi-site Neuroimaging’, ‘Big Data and Population Imaging Markers’, ‘Multi-site MR Harmonisation’ and ‘Multi-modal Neuroimaging Targets’ in dementia, for which we have assembled an expert line-up of speakers from the UK and Europe. There will be three poster sessions, an interactive panel discussion and a keynote lecture by Professor Frederik Barkhof from VU University Amsterdam. The conference will be followed by a drinks reception at the college.

This conference is generously supported by Alzheimer’s Research UK (the UK’s leading dementia research charity), the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, and the NIHR Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre.
