Outline of the Russia-UK workshop
The UK has international experience not only in the developing of hyperpolarization methods, but also in the successful use of hyperpolarization techniques in clinical MRI studies. At the same time in Russia, despite the achievement of a whole series of fundamental results in this field, conditions for medical applications of the hyperpolarized substances have not been created. Therefore, a Russian-British seminar with mutual exchange of scientific and technical information will serve to promote some advanced hyperpolarization techniques in Russian clinics.

The seminar will be held in the form of a scientific and educational school for young scientists, where the training of new personnel in the field of medical theranostics will be carried out. The participants will have an opportunity to attend lectures of leading British and Russian scientists on the promising areas of MRI research, the application of that results will contribute to improving the level of public health in Russia. Young candidates of sciences and applicants for academic degrees will be able to make a presentation there, verify the level of their results with world achievements, and get the recommendations of well-known scientists on the development of their projects. The seminar will also present other promising areas in the field of MRI - multinuclear research in the weak and strong magnetic fields, electrodynamic methods of amplifying NMR signals with the help of miniature implantable coils and metamaterial resonators, lung imaging with fluorocarbons, studying the processes of sodium metabolism in a living body with recording signals at the larmor frequency of sodium-23, etc. At the end of the seminar, there will be a round table dedicated to the discussion of creating in Russia a Centre of Hyperpolarized Research under the supervision of British scientists with an extensive experience in implementing hyperpolarization devices in clinical MRI diagnosis. An example of such success is the biomedical cluster of the University of Nottingham in the UK (https://www.nuh.nhs.uk/nihr-nottingham-biomedical-...), where scientific developments in the field of medical physics and technology are aimed at promoting interdisciplinary dialogue and translation of new methods of respiratory, musculoskeletal, abdominal and brain MRI studies into clinical practice.
