 On Friday 29 June 2018, we have the pleasure of Dr. Susan Francis giving a Global Excellence Lecture entitled "MRI measures associated with cirrhosis and portal hypertension". She will cover topics such as ASL, PC-flow, T1 (IR-SE-EPI), T1 (MOLLI), T2, and DWI.

Susan Francis' research has centred on developing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) methods for biomedical applications, over the last ~ 15 years in this field. This has included the application and development of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) techniques in neuroscience, and the development of quantitative MRI methods. She has developed/implemented arterial spin labelling (ASL) methods to measure blood flow and blood volume non-invasively in the brain. Since 2005, she have worked on applications of these techniques at ultra-high field (7T). She has a strong interest in fMRI and EEG/MEG correlates, with extensive collaborations and applications in high resolution fMRI, particularly to assess somatosensory and visual function, and the brain-gut interactions.

Dr. Susan Francis is an Associate Professor and Reader of Physics at the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre (SPMIC) at the University of Nottingham. This is an interdisciplinary, cross-faculty centre for innovative imaging in experimental and translational medicine, bringing together researchers who develop new medical imaging techniques with clinicians and scientists who use them.

The Global Excellence Seminar will be held on Friday 29 June 2018 in the MR Conference Room, following the lecture given by MD, Ph.D. Fellow Ditte Kirkegaard-Klitbo.
