She defended her PhD in 2011 with the thesis entitled “Diagnostic and prognostic value of PET/CT with 18F-FDG and 11C-Choline in prostate carcinoma”. Her main areas of research are imaging in prostate cancer, in breast cancer, liver radioembolization and bone densitometry. She is a professor at the Faculty of Medicine of Universidad de Navarra. She is currently the president of the Oncology Group of the Spanish Society of Nuclear Medicine.

Prof. Karolien Goffin (Speaker)

Prof. Dr. Karolien Goffin is a staff member of nuclear medicine at the University Hospital Leuven and associate professor at KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium. She is part of the multidisciplinary teams dealing with uro-oncology, among others. Her main research interests are preclinical development of diagnostic and therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals, the application of existing oncological PET tracers in a broad range of malignancies and clinical settings and the introduction of novel PET tracers and therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals in (uro-)oncology. Prof. Goffin is chair of the Oncology and Theranostics Committee of EANM, board member of the Belgian Multidisciplinary meeting on Urological Cancers (BMUC) and member of the Imaging Group of the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC). She is associate editor of EJNMMI and editorial board member of JNM, Cancers and Clinical and Translational Imaging.

Dr. László Papp (Speaker)

László Papp obtained his medical physics PhD at the Medical University of Vienna (MUV) in 2021, focusing on medical image analysis with artificial intelligence (AI) approaches. He is the co-fouder of Dedicaid GmbH, a spin-off of MUV, which was acquired and now wholly-owned by Telix Pharmaceuticals. Within Dedicaid, he conceptualized and implemented the AI solutions to aid the building process of cloud AI clinical decision support systems (CDSS). Before becoming a researcher at MUV, he was the head of software R&D operations at a major medical imaging company in Hungary for almost 10-years. He is currently a full-time postdoc at MUV, building his research team as the group lead of the Applied Quantum Computing (AQC) group.

What a line up – we can’t wait for you to join us in Vienna!
