My lab develops new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methodologies to better understand the human body.

Most atomic nuclei possess an intrinsic magnetic moment. By shaping the electromagnetic fields inside the MRI scanner we interact with these moments, with which we can observe the structure, physiology and biochemistry of the human body in vivo and non-invasively. Developing new ways of manipulating the nuclear spins can provide us not only with important tools to diagnose disease, but also with a better understanding of the basic biological processes which govern us.

We are currently looking for motivated Ph.D. and M.Sc. students. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply.
