  • SNSF Project Grant awarded to Prof. Jessica Bastiaansen

    Jessica Bastiaansen was awarded an SNSF project grant entitled “Advanced lipid-insensitive MRI relaxometry for unbiased noninvasive characterization of the entire human liver” Significant shortcomings exist in the current imaging technology for assessing biomarkers of liver disease such as fibrosis. Current methods are not designed for the liver. Hence, they face challenges due to the presence […]
