Fellowship award for Professor Lurie

Professor David Lurie has been awarded Senior Fellowship of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine.

Professor Lurie, who heads up a team developing the next generation of MRI technology – Fast Field Cycling MRI – received the accolade for “his inventions and development of novel imaging methods in electron spin resonance, double resonance and polarization, field dependent relaxation contrast and MRI field cycling and his early work on slice-selective pulse design”.

Senior Fellowship of the ISMRM is awarded for ‘significant and substantial contributions to research in a field within the Society’s purposes’.

During the virtual ceremony, Professor Lurie’s award was confirmed by the society’s president, Professor Tim Leiner.

Professor Lurie said: “I am greatly honoured to receive this award, especially so since previous ISMRM Fellows include my former Aberdeen colleagues and mentors Professors John Mallard and Jim Hutchison, as well as many other world-wide luminaries in the field.

“The work which led to my Senior Fellowship would not have been possible without the efforts of the highly-talented team of MRI researchers with whom I have worked over many years and is recognition of the high regard with which Aberdeen MRI research is held by the international community.”
