Columbia Biomedical Engineering welcomes Christoph Juchem

Oct 10 2016

Associate Professor Christoph Juchem joins Columbia from Yale University where he served as assistant professor of Radiology & Biomedical Imaging and Neurology, and Co-Director of the 7 Tesla Brain MR Spectroscopy Core. 

Juchems’s research focuses on the improvement of technology and methods to enhance the clinical potential of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS). The goal of his laboratory is to provide crucial tools to obtain information early in the development of multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions with dedicated MRI/MRS techniques. At Yale, Juchem developed a novel, generalized method for the synthesis of magnetic field shapes that allows unrivaled B0 magnetic field homogeneity as a prerequisite for meaningful MRI and MRS.

Juchem is a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) scholar and has been a finalist of the I.I. Rabi Young Investigator Award of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM). Juchem served as Chair of the ISMRM’s MR Engineering Study Group, journal reviewer for more than 10 peer-reviewed scientific journals (including Magnetic Resonance in Medicine Distinguished Reviewer in 2014/2016) and grant reviewer for 4 national research societies.

Juchem will teach Principles of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
