MRI research group at UNIST, Korea

We are young and interdisciplinary group of people spending most of our time in developing quantitative in-vivo biomedical imaging techniques in the pursuit of establishing relevant imaging biomarker for human diseases. Interdisciplinary nature of undergoing investigations keeps us busy and think outside the box everyday, focused on pushing the limit of state-of-art in-vivo imaging technologies and its in-vivo applications.
