Professor Ian Marshall

Position: Head of Medical Physics & Medical Engineering

Interests:

All aspects of Magnetic Resonance, with particular emphasis on the development, application and evaluation of techniques for clinical and biomedical use. Specific interests are (i) quantitative blood flow and cardiac studies; (ii) Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy for the non-invasive investigation of metabolism and hypothermia therapy; (iii) undersampling techniques for rapid imaging; (iv) large-scale numerical simulations of MRI.

Institute: University of Edinburgh

Department: School of Clinical Sciences and Community Health


Research Themes

After graduating in physics from Oxford University, I joined Lothian Health Board as a Medical Physicist, working on Physiological Measurement and the development of instrumentation for research studies. In 1992, I was awarded a PhD for work on non-invasive measurement of airways using an acoustic technique. Since 1991, I have specialised in Magnetic Resonance Imaging, being appointed to the University of Edinburgh in 1996. I was appointed Professor of Magnetic Resonance Physics in 2007 and Head of Medical Physics & Medical Engineering in 2008. I divide my time between the SFC Brain Imaging Research Centre and the Medical School at Little France, leading a small group of physicists supporting the development of MRI for clinical and preclinical use. Responsibilities: Head of Medical Physics Unit Core Management Team of SFC Brain Imaging Research Centre (www.sbirc.ed.ac.uk) Director of WTCRF Image Analysis Core Member of SINAPSE MRI and SPIRIT Committees Beyond Edinburgh, I serve on the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM: www.ismrm.org) Annual Meeting Program Committee, and I am Treasurer/Membership Secretary of the British Chapter of ISMRM (www.ismrm.org.uk).
