In october, I went to Barcelona to attend the annual meeting of the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB). Gunnar also came for one day. I presented a poster about my work modelling liver function. I also presented a poster and gave a short "lightning talk" on behalf of Mikael Forsgren, who could not attend.

Earlier this month I attended the annual meeting of the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology. At the conference I had the opportunity to giva a presentation of a part of my thesis project. In this part of the project, we're using mechanistic modelling of data from contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging in order to get biomarkers that can quantify liver function. The idea is that our biomarkers should be used by physicians, e.g. when planning liver surgery.

Our research is spreading and more people are becoming aware of the possibilities of systems biology!

A few weeks ago, we had a visit from the local TV news station, Östnytt. They had become interested in our work after reading about Gunnar's award as "Årets Nytänkare" (Innovator of the Year) from the Swedish Found for Research Without Animal Experiments. More information about the award can be found here (only in Swedish).
