(Meeting-ID: 680 8649 6919, Passcode: 682584)


About the presenter:

Christoph Juchem is an Associate Professor in the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Radiology at Columbia University in the City of New York. In his research, he develops novel magnetic resonance methods for neuroscientific and clinical applications. His goal as a physicist is to realize the full potential of magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy as diagnostic tools. His clinical goal is to understand the role that neurochemicals play in the protection of the human central nervous system or, alternatively, how dysfunction promotes vulnerability towards neurodegenerative, neuroimmunological and psychiatric disorders.

Dr. Juchem has 20+ years of experience in developing and conducting in vivo MR experiments at 3.0-11.7 Tesla in humans and animal models. He has demonstrated his scientific expertise in 60+ publications, book chapters and patents, as reviewer for 24 scientific journals and as grant reviewer for 9 national research societies. He served as Co-Director of Yale’s 7T Brain MR Spectroscopy Core, Chair of the ISMRM Engineering Study group, member of the ISMRM Annual Meeting Program Committee (AMPC), and the editorial board of NMR in Biomedicine. He is Vice-Chair of the ISMRM MR Spectroscopy Study Group, to be Chair in 2023.


About the presentation:

Gradients and shims for B0 magnetic field control are essential components of every MR system. In my presentation, I will provide an historic overview of the art of B0 coil design from early seminal work to the current state-of-the-art. I will summarize hardware, design and computational concepts, and outline the flow and progression of key inventions that shaped this very active field of MR engineering. I will conclude the combined educational and research presentation with a tentative outlook to the many exciting applications and opportunities the future might bring.


We are looking forward to meeting you!
