About us

Located in the Department of Neurology, the neuroimaging research unit brings together a group of scientists, committed to the advancement of knowledge and development of MRI. Because of the fact that successful MRI research needs the incorporation of multiple disciplines, our members have a background in mathematics, physics or biomedical engineering.

Mission statement

Our mission is to develop and implement new MRI techniques for characterizing and modeling brain tissue. With the application of these techniques in a clinical setting we want to improve our understanding of specific inflammatory and neurodegenerative brain diseases including multiple sclerosis (MS), Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's disease (PD), and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). We also provide state-of-the-art MRI methodologies and expertise for in vivo and postmortem MRI studies to other research groups.



Carlos Milovic (Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile) has been awarded an ISMRM Research Exchange Grant and will join our team in September!

Christoph was awarded an  Erwin Schrödinger fellowship - Congratulations!

Stefan and Christian received funding for their MRI research projects ( I3001 and P30134) from the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). 

Christoph received the "Best poster Award" at the 4th International Workshop on MRI Phase Contrast & Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping

Our research project "Fast QSM for Alzheimer's disease" received the HTI:Human-Technology-Interface Award.

We hosted the 4th International Workshop on MRI Phase Contrast & Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping in Graz.

Recently "derStandard" published an article about our ongoing research project about QSM:  derStandard - "Grazer MRT-Entwicklung untersucht Gehirn in Rekordzeit".

Congratulation to Christoph for completing his PhD in biomedical engineering!

Christoph's paper about "Effects of formalin fixation and temperature on MR relaxation times in the human brain" has been accepted for publication in NMR in Biomedicine.

Christian's paper about "Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping using 3D EPI and Total Generalized Variation" is now available in NeuroImage.

Recently "derStandard" published an article about our ongoing research project about brain iron:  derStandard - Mentales Rosten.

The magazine "UNIZEIT" featured our research project in cooperation with the Institute of Physics:  UNIZEIT - Rost im Kopf ("the rusting brain").
