Between the 24th and 27th of May 2018 our director, Markus Mitterhauser, visited together with Wolfgang Wadsak and Markus Hartenbach the Azerbaijan National Center of Oncology in Baku. During their stay, they get to see the activities of the Azerbaijan’s National Center of Oncology as well as the research which is conducted at the center. At the same time, the 2nd Nuclear Medicine Symposium took place in Baku where Markus Mitterhauser and Wolfgang Wadsak had the honour to give a lecture about PET Radiopharmacy and new PET tracers in oncology.
To strengthen the scientific cooperation, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed by the Director General of Azerbaijan’s National Center of Oncology, Jamil Aliyev and by Markus Mitterhauser and Wolfgang Wadsak as official representatives of the Medical University of Vienna.
Overall, the meeting was a very memorable experience with lots of outstanding impressions, inspiring scientific talks and insights into the cultural diversity of Azerbaijan. .
