New DFG research group on MRE in cancer (FOR5628)

How do tumors and metastases develop? What makes them resistant to treatment? We want to investigate these questions with a new research group at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin using multifrequency magnetic resonance elastography (MRE). The project is being funded for four years by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

Introductory courses and BIOQIC Day 2023

The first PhD students of the third and last BIOQIC cohort have started.Their introductory courses are scheduled for the week of July 3-7. Like previous times, the PhD students will learn about the basics of imaging and the methods used in our graduate program. Our annual BIOQIC day(s) will be held this year together with…

Summary and overview of the first ISMRM workshop on magnetic resonance elastography, August 25–26, 2022, Berlin, Germany

An ISMRM workshop on MR elastography was held at Charité–Universitätsmedizin Berlin on August 25–26, 2022. As an exclusively in-person event, 65 participants from 9 countries attended the workshop despite COVID-19–related restrictions. The topics of the workshop covered cellular and microtissue mechanical interactions, the development of MR elastography driver technology, approaches to inverse problems, clinical applications,…
