Development of inhomogeneous Magnetization Transfer (ihMT) for short T1D-components MR Imaging – Application on the Purkinje network of the Cardiac Conduction System (CCS)



The proposed project aims at developing an ihMT acquisition methodology for imaging the short T1D Purkinje fibers. More precisely, the goal is to implement and develop a high resolution (75 µm isotropic) 3D ihMT sequence (on a Bruker 7T scanner equipped with a cryoprobe), optimized for components associated to short T1D values (< 1 ms). Sequence parameter optimization based on numerical simulations will first be developed and tested in vitro on fantoms made of short T1D components before validation on ex vivo samples containing free running PF. The successful candidate will have in charge the conduct of the numerical simulations and experiments including experiment planning, sample handling, MRI sequence development and optimization, data acquisition, analysis, and statistics.



We are looking for a motivated candidate with a PhD in biomedical engineering, medical imaging, MR physics or related topic. Prior experience with numerical simulations, MRI techniques developments would be advantageous. Good writing and communication skills in English are required. The successful candidate will work in the ihMT team of CRMBM composed of two senior scientists and a PhD student and in collaboration with the team of IHU Liryc, Bordeaux University (PI: Julie Magat), our partner in this project. The duration of the project (ANR funding) is 12 months (+12 months renewable) with a salary and benefits corresponding to usual Aix-Marseille University conditions.



The CRMBM laboratory is located in the center of Marseille, within La Timone university hospital.
