The MR Research Centre

The Magnetic Ressonance Research Centre

  • Department of Clinical Medicine, Aarhus University, located at Aarhus University Hospital

What is the general research aim?
The Magnetic Resonance (MR) Research Center, provides state-of-the-art facilities and resources for advanced bioimaging research. Our core mission is to develop and translate new MR technology to researchers and clinicians to push the boundaries for excellence in magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging.

How is this achieved?
Our interdisciplinary research group collaborate with external collaborators to develop and utilize advanced imaging biomarkers. 

Research focus

  • Hyperpolarized carbon-13 MRI and MRS
  • Sodium (23Na) MRI
  • Phosphorus (31P) MRS
  • Deuterium (2H) MRS
  • Proton (1H) MRI and MRS
  • Glioblastoma
  • ASL
  • Stroke
  • Alzheimer
  • TBI     


  • Six clinical 1.5T and 3T systems for animal and clinical exams
  • One High field 9.4T pre-clinical MRI system for pre-clinical examinations.
  • A 5T and a 6.7T dissolution dynamic nuclear polarization (d-DNP) systems for metabolic imaging.
  • Two Low field NMR spectroscopy systems for 1H and 13C metabolomics.
