“Our goal is to push the envelope of MR methodology development to address significant human health concerns and in the pursuit of new knowledge. Using an interdisciplinary, translational, creative and collaborative approach that includes basic scientists, clinicians and industry alike, the whole of this effort is greater than the sum of its parts.”
Congratulations to Matthias Stuber who became a member of the first class of the “Master of SCMR (SCMR)” designation recipients at the annual meeting of the SCMR in Orlando, FL. The MSCMR credential is reserved for those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding scientific, educational, and/or clinical accomplishments in the field of cardiovascular MRI (CMR), distinguished service to the Society, and continuous membership over an extended period of time. Candidates for the MSCMR award must have served as leaders of SCMR committees or as members of the Board of Trustees. Contributions to the field and to the Society are expected to be exceptionally high. MSCMR recipients are expected to have made CMR a career focus.
That makes two back-to-back Magnetic Resonance in Medicine editor’s picks on the free-running framework in a row. After Lorenzo Di Sopra and Jérôme Yerly’s 5D framework, congratulations are now in order for Jessica Bastiaansen for the 5D FISS study together with Bob Edelman an Ioannis Koktzoglou at NorthShore.
A warm welcome to our new PhD student Adèle Mackowiak, who will work on quantitative water-fat separated 3D MRI with Dr. Jessica Bastiaansen.
We are all looking forward to the next version of the group’s international Retreat, this time loaded to the brim with renowned international speakers!
