Innovation BIOnd your Imagination!

General description

Year 2030, the world faces great danger against invisible invaders. We need a superhero, but not any superhero, we need one with special vision to detect them and save all humans from the incoming disaster.

Do you want to be our hero? Have you ever wanted to have X-Ray vision?

Well, keep dreaming, because we’re sorry to tell you that we obviously can’t give you that, so, why don’t you instead come to Madrid and learn about medical imaging techniques that would help to detect all those invaders?

Think about it, in the future you could be the one that helps detecting all those illnesses that face humanity and become a REAL hero!

The aim of this course is to introduce the participants to biomedical imaging techniques, along with innovation in this area, in order to make them interested in the subject.

But there’’s even more! In the unlikely case that you are not already writing your letter, maybe it’s because you are missing something:… all this will take place in MADRID!!! This beautiful city is the perfect place to try our world famous sangría, go for a tapas crawling or taking a siesta in the Retiro.

You will have the opportunity to live the BEST summer experience under Madrid’’s blue sky, with the BEST people, the BEST adventures and the BEST spirit you have never felt before.
