Massire Aurélien

Post-doctoral Fellow (PhD)

at AMU

My postdoctoral research project is centred on the development of innovative MR methods for human spinal cord proton imaging at 7 Tesla, using a cervical 8TX/8RX RF coil-array prototype.

Post-doctoral Fellow (PhD)

Detailed Activities

My current focus is the acquisition of high-resolution multiparametric MRI data to improve the non-invasive characterization of the healthy and pathological spinal cord. I am working under the supervision of Virginie CALLOT (CNRS DR2).
