The NKI Center for Biomedical Imaging and Neuromodulation (C-BIN) will host the 3rd symposium of the NYMIRC. Please join us for a lively and stimulating meeting of  local imaging researchers. There will be four sessions of short presentations with ample opportunity for discussion and social interaction. We will provide transport from and to Manhattan and a luncheon at NKI.   We look forward to seeing you in Novemeber.
