Professor Chris Rodgers
I am a Professor of Biomedical Imaging. I am an expert in human Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS). My group develop advanced MRI and MRS methods using the 7T Terra MRI scanner at the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre. Our aim is to push the boundaries of MRI techniques and to translate the latest methods ready for use in clinical studies in collaboration with colleagues in Clinical Neurosciences and elsewhere.
I am a work-package leader in the EU-funded "Non-invasive Chemistry Imaging in the Whole Human Body" (NICI) consortium. We are creating a new type of metabolic MRI scan to predict the response to chemotherapy in patients with liver metastases.
I am a work-package leader in the EU-funded MITI study which aims to show how a class of drugs called SGLT2 inhibitors improve cardiac energy handling and relieve symptoms in patients with heart failure.
At Peterhouse, I give supervisions for Part IB Chemistry A, including on topics such as quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, symmetry and the electronic structure of solids.
