Chris Rodgers, as part of the "NICI" consortium, has been awarded a share of a €3.1m Future and Emerging Technologies grant.

Chris Rodgers (Head of 7T MRI Physics at WBIC) is part of a consortium awarded €3.1m by the European Union to develop a cutting edge quintuple-resonant whole body RF coil for use in the WBIC 7T MRI scanner. This system will be used to track the early response to chemotherapy in patients with colorectal cancer and liver metastases. This project is a collaboration with UMC Utrecht, Amsterdam, Pisa, MR Coils, and the major MRI scanner vendors: Siemens, Philips and GE.
