A close DRCMR collaborator, Professor James B. Rowe from University of Cambridge, has been appointed as Honorary Professor in Clinical Neuroscience at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at University of Copenhagen. Congratulations!  
Two positions at Biomedical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark, related to MRI and involving DRCMR and DTU employees are currently open
A range of interesting talks on research highlights and Danish MRI history were presented at the DRCMR 30th year anniversary in May 2015.
On May 8th 2015, MD Sara Krøis Holm succesfully defended her PhD thesis on effects of glucocorticoid treatment. It unfortunately happened simultaneously with the DRCMR 30th year symposium, but went very well. Details about the thesis and the event is below. Contratulations to Sara!
A DRCMR 30th Anniversary Report [in Danish] is now available for download. It can be downloaded as a PDF optimized for screen or printing. It shows some of the historic highlights of the centre.
One of the strongest MR research scanners worldwide is now inaugurated at the Danish Research Center for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR) located at Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre, Denmark.
One of the first four Novo Nordisk Foundation Interdisciplinary Synergy Grants was in January 2015 awarded to Professor Hartwig R. Siebner from the DRCMR, and external collaborators at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
On the 19th of January 2015 Martin Vestergaard Gøtzsche succesfully defended his PhD thesis entitled "Neural and endocrinological correlates of previous glucocorticoid treatment in children and adolescents treated for non-cerebral diseases". Well done!
On January 9th 2015, David Meder defended his PhD entitled "Mapping neural correlates of value-based sequential decision-making with fMRI". It wen't very well, and congratulations are most appropriate.
Postdoc and MaP group member Henrik Lundell has been honoured with a Sapere Aude reasearch talent award from the Danish Research Council for Independent Research. With this award follows 500.000 DKK, which will be used to expand his current project on ultra high field MRI of brain microstructure in individuals with multiple sclerosis. Congratulations!
Parking is currently challenging at Hvidovre Hospital (February 2015) due to construction at parking lot P2. There is parking elsewhere, and almost always at parking lot P4, which is five minutes walk from the DRCMR.
On October 28th 2014, Nina Linde Reislev succesfully defended her PhD entitled The Wiring of the Blind Brain. Congratulations!
Course title: Magnetic Resonance Imaging Basics Content and format: The aim of the course is to provide a basis for understanding MRI measurements, pitfalls and literature. The course covers introductory MRI acquisition in a series of ~7 weekly interactive lectures starting October 28th, 2014. These cover MR basics, acquisition methods and parameters with a focus on understanding. Active participation is required. The course starts at a level requiring little or no MR experience, and a technical background is not required. The target audience is employees and students at the MR department but the course is open and free for external participants. DRCMR employees, students and co-workers are given priority if the number of participants is limited due to space limitations. The course covers the basics needed to later follow the independent and more technical spring course Medical Magnetic Resonance Imaging offered as part of the Medicine&Technology program at the Technical…
The following announcement of open position was revised September 24, 2014.
Christian Thode Larsen, DRCMR and DTU, won best paper award for a paper entitled "N3 Bias Field Correction Explained as a Bayesian Modeling Method" at the workshop "Bayesian and Graphical Models for Biomedical Imaging (BAMBI)" held in connection with the MICCAI conference in Boston, 2014. Congratulations to Christian and co-authors Eugenio Iglesias and Koen van Leemput!
The Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance was in August 2014 awarded the Global Excellence in Health Award by the Capital Region of Denmark. This award is given to recognize and promote research, education, innovation and healthcare provisioning living up the highest international standards. The nomination committee put special emphasis on outstanding contributions to research and disease management regarding neurological diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and parkinsonism. Insight into the treatment of these are obtained using combinations of Magnetic Resonance (MR) and other techniques. Further information in English and  Danish, and a video presenting the department and the award, is available.
  A PhD position on RF design for hyperpolarization is open at Biomedical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark. The deadline is August 31st, 2014.
