Former DRCMR head Olaf B. Paulson stops at the DRCMR
A truly grand old man of Danish Neuroscience (except for age), and former head of the DRCMR, professor Olaf B. Paulson, has decided to end his position at the DRCMR from July 2012. Two years ago, he decided to stop as head of the department, but continued contributing in several ways, and offering his invaluable experience. He continues as professor and consultant at the Neurobiological Research Unit and at the Neuroscience Center at Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Olaf B. Paulson is largely responsible for the success of not only the DRCMR, but of Danish Neuroscience as a whole. He is behind many initiatives over the years, including the national ultrahigh field MRI project that is centered around a whole-body MRI 7 tesla MRI scanner to be installed at Hvidovre Hospital early 2013. Olaf will continue in steering groups of the 7T project and is still involved in a number of DRCMR projects.
Olaf has done fantastic work for the DRCMR and the MR department and deserves great credit for that. An official celebration of the many accomplishments will take place in connection with the inauguration of the 7T facility.
