Mike Eijbersen is currently doing his graduation project at our department, within the Biomedical MR research group. His background is Physics and Astronomy and he is interested in the physical side of Magnetic Resonance (MR) with a medical component. The project is determining the best in vivo acquisition strategies of hyper polarized molecules using MR imaging methods. It involves pulse sequence programming, MR(I) physics, Dynamic Nuclear Polarization theory (quantum mechanical) and practice as well as ‘real life’ acquisition. His overall supervisor is Tom Scheenen, but Mike will work extensively with different people for different aspects of the project.
