Our research is focused on the methodological development and basic research in the fundamentals of magnetic resonance, and on their potential applications in the field of biophysical, biochemical, and clinical sciences.

We believe that basic research on MR signal formation and the development of dedicated MR techniques is the key for a widespread application of MR in the future.


MR Tissue Characterization


During the last years, we concentrated on the development and application of rapid gradient echo techniques, particularly balanced and non-balanced steady state techniques, with a special focus on MR tissue quantification.

Our expertise and research activities in the field of MR tissue characterization covers:

  • Relaxometry
  • Diffusion Imaging
  • Quantitative Magnetization Transfer
  • Water-Fat Imaging
  • Imaging of short-lived T2 species
  • Post Mortem MRI
