LE STUDIUM Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies and Inserm Research unit U930: Imaging and Brain at University François-Rabelais of Tours are organising an international conference on acoustic bubbles in therapy in the French Loire Valley, on 23rd and 24th October, 2017. We are proud to announce that the old City Hall of Tours, Hôtel de Ville de Tours, has allocated a beautiful hall for this event.

 The conference focusses on recent advances in the development and application of microbubbles in therapy. Plenary sessions include the following topics: bubble physics, bubble acoustic phenomena, bubble engineering and design, in-vitro evaluation, preclinical validations, and clinical studies. Key topics are microbubbles, ultrasound contrast agents, therapeutic ultrasound, bubbles clouds, microfluidics, sonoporation, ultrasound-guided drug delivery, and antibubbles.
The conference is limited to 80 participants. We are hoping to welcome both people from science and from the clinic.  We encourage students to give a poster presentation.
