Welcome to the Chair of Cellular and Molecular Imaging (CMI)

We develop, apply and do research on a variety of biomedical imaging technologies, in particular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS), positron emission tomography (PET), computed tomography (CT), and their combinations. Imaging research is complemented by an electronics/coil lab for MRI hardware development, and working groups on computational cardiology and hyperpolarized liquids for MRI use.  

The chair is part of the Comprehensive Heart Failure Center (CHFC) at the University Hospital Würzburg. As such, research questions tend to focus on biomedical or diagnostic imaging of heart failure. Since heart failure is a complex disease involving a variety of organ systems, research usually focuses on the heart but also includes other organs like the brain, lung, or kidney. 

The Chair is the research part of the CHFC senior research professorship Cellular and Molecular Imaging, which started operation in November 2014. The complementary supporting imaging structure to the Chair is the CHFC Core Facility Imaging which hosts and organizes CHFC related cardiovascular imaging support and access.

Imaging research related questions or scientific collaboration requests should be directed to the coordinator of the Core Facility Dr. Alessandra Bierwagen (bierwagen_a@ ukw.de; +49 201 46246).
