Edinburgh Preclinical Imaging

CVS seminar

Experimental and translational MRI studies on brain reorganization after stroke

Presented by:
Professor Rick Dijkhuizen
University Medical Center Utrecht
Host: Dr Maurits Jansen


Rick Dijkhuizen is professor of Experimental and Translational Neuroimaging, and head of the Biomedical MR Imaging and Spectroscopy group, part of the Center for Image Sciences, at the University Medical Center Utrecht (The Netherlands). His research focuses on multiparametric imaging of brain structure and function in health and disease, with particular emphasis on i) development of tools for improved diagnosis of brain pathophysiology, ii) characterization of neural network (re)organization, and iii) monitoring of neuroprotective and -restorative therapies. He has been particularly involved in preclinical MRI studies to get improved insights in stroke pathophysiology and recovery. He collaborates with various national and international institutions on topics such as stroke recovery, brain repair and functional imaging.
