Hands-on workshop on non-invasive outcome measures for NMDs

16 - 17 May 2011

Paris, France

Institut de Myologie, in partnership with TREAT-NMD:  hands-on workshop on non-invasive outcome measures for NMDs.

Two workshops led by outcome measures specialists at the Institut de Myologie (Pierre Carlier, director of the NMR laboratory and Jean-Yves Hogrel, director of the neuromuscular physiology and evaluation laboratory) will be held in Paris, the first on May 16th and 17th, immediately after the Myology 2011 congress, and the second on June 29th and 30th, immediately following the Paris Summer School of Myology.

The content of both workshops is identical - participants may select one of the two dates according to convenience.
A maximum of five participants, preferably having taken part at one of the Myology Schools, will receive intensive hands-on training in the latest non-invasive outcome measures techniques, including force measurements, activity monitoring, and quantitative NMR techniques (imaging and spectroscopy).
There is no cost for attendance. Applicants will be selected based on CV, short motivation letter and phone interview.
Brief program
Day 1: force measurements, activity monitoring
Day 2: NMR: whole body-imaging, quantitative analysis of muscle composition and of inflammation, new perspectives in spectroscopy
