Professor of Biomedical Imaging
University of Leeds
Jürgen E. Schneider, PhD, holds a Chair in Biomedical Imaging at the Leeds Institute of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine, University of Leeds. He completed his PhD with Prof A. Haase at the University of Würzburg in Germany in 2000, and relocated to Oxford in January 2001. He has been a major driving force nationally and internationally in the development and application of experimental cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS) for rapid, non-invasive and comprehensive phenotyping of the rodent heart at ultra-high magnetic fields, and has published extensively in this field. Until 2017, Prof Schneider co-directed the British Heart Foundation Experimental Magnetic Resonance Unit (BMRU) in Oxford, where he was responsible for the development and application of experimental cardiac MR. In 2016 he accepted a personal chair in Leeds and is now directing the recently opened Experimental and Preclinical Imaging Centre (ePIC), which provides access to the latest generation of multi-modal imaging equipment, including MRI (7 Tesla), PET / SPECT / CT, optical imaging, ultrasound and µCT, and, together with Prof Sven Plein, co-directs the clinical Advanced Imaging Centre (AIC).
Prof Schneider leads a research programme on the development of advanced biomedical (MR) imaging methods in rodent models to address important mechanistic and basic research questions, and to translate these techniques into the clinic.
