Online Workshop: In Vivo Magnetic Resonance – Recent Methods and Advances

, Events

The online Webinar on “In Vivo Magnetic Resonance - Recent Methods and Advances” is supported by the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the Collaborative Research Centre SFB824.

In this workshop, both internationally leading experts and junior scientists will present research highlights in the field of in vivo magnetic resonance giving their personal view of where research in magnetic resonance is heading. Rather than focussing on one special research topic, the workshop aims to highlight the methodological width and the multifaceted applications of magnetic resonance. The program also includes plenty of time for scientific exchange and discussions.

Date: 6th May 2021
Time:  9:00 am - 4:00 pm  
Place: online (zoom)

Registration: Until 4th May 2021 via  (Participation is free of charge but limited to 500 persons)



Franz Schilling is professor for Biomedical Magnetic Resonance at the Klinikum rechts der Isar of the Technical University of Munich and since 2018 a member of the Young Academy of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities.

About the topic: In Vivo Magnetic Resonance – Recent Methods and Advances

Fifty years ago in 1971, Dr. Paul Lauterbur pioneered the idea of spatial encoding of magnetic resonance signals. Since its foundations, the field of in vivo magnetic resonance has progressed from anatomical to physiological, functional and molecular imaging thereby yielding unprecedented non-destructive insights into the human body. Still, innovative novel technologies that enhance sensitivity, exploit fast acquisition schemes or benefit from artificial intelligence approaches continue to arise leading to novel applications such as assessment of perfusion, microstructure, metabolism and connectivity. In this workshop, both experts in the field of in vivo magnetic resonance and junior scientists present research highlights in the field of in vivo magnetic resonance.
