Supporting Organizations

ImNO would like to thank the current and past industry, commercialization and research networks for their support.

This year's supporting organizations are:

OICR Imaging Program

Program Co-Director: Dr. Aaron Fenster and and Martin Yaffe
Sponsor: Ontario Institute of Cancer Research (OICR)

The OICR Imaging Program (OICR IP) accelerates the translation of research into the development of new imaging innovations for earlier cancer detection, diagnosis and treatment through four major projects; probe development and commercialization, medical imaging instrumentation and software, pathology validation, and imaging for clinical trials.

OICR IP facilitates improved screening and treatment options for cancer patients by streamlining advances in medical imaging through the complex pipeline from discovery through clinical translation and ultimately to clinical use.


Machine Learning in Medical Imaging Consortium (MaLMIC)

Machine Learning for Medical Imaging Working Group: Aaron Fenster, Anne Martel, Julia Publicover, Amber L. Simpson, Aaron Ward, Martin Yaffe

The Consortium was launched to accelerate research and development of machine learning solutions for unmet needs in medical imaging through collaborations between academic and clinical researchers, and with Canadian industry.
