The ISRS 2019 scientific program was primarily built through the abstract submissions of your peers throughout the globe. Except for the five keynote presentations and the pre-symposium lectures, all other sessions were constructed based on the peer-reviewed research of your colleagues.

The ISRS symposium series has a long and treasured history of providing valued interaction between colleagues throughout the world. A team of internationally-respected leaders within the field guided program development. Scroll down to see the list of colleagues which comprise the Scientific Program Committee.

You can access the ISRS 2019 program and abstracts online. Simply browse:

The abstracts were also published in a special issue of the Journal of Labelled Compounds and Radiopharmaceuticals. You can access the abstracts via the following URL:
