During the meeting, the GIDRM and GIRM Gold Medal will be awarded to a distinguished Italian scientist for her/his contributions to Magnetic Resonance. The recipient of the Medal will present a 50 minutes plenary lecture.

This year a new “Under 35 GIDRM award” is established. This award is based on self- nominations (no letters of presentation are required). Applicants should send their CV to direttivo@gidrm.org by May 31st, 2016. The winner (selected by the GIDRM board) will be entitled to present a 30 minutes plenary lecture and will receive a plaque.
