Personal profile

Research profile

After Gustav Strijkers obtained his PhD degree he was appointed as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore (USA ), in the group of prof. C.L. Chien. During this time he set up a new experimental method to measure the electronic spin-polarization of magnetic materials. Another part of the research involved a study of the peculiar electrical transport properties of semi-metallic bismuth nanostructures. During his PhD work he used Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) as a spectroscopic measurement tool to elucidate the structural arrangement of atoms in ultra-thin metallic films. With this background, he was appointed at the department of Biomedical Engineering of the Eindhoven University of Technology in 2001 to become an assistant professor and to form a new group of Biomedical NMR, together with prof. Klaas Nicolay. In 2008 he was appointed associate professor. He has set out three main lines of scientific research projects during the last years. A first line focuses on Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) of skeletal muscle. Fiber-tracking techniques to non-invasively determine the in vivo three-dimensional architecture of skeletal muscle were developed. Quantitative diffusion MRI was used for monitoring skeletal muscle injury during ischemia and reperfusion. A second line of research involves the development of novel lipid-based contrast agents for molecular MR imaging to study animal models of atherosclerosis, ischemic heart disease, tumor development and angiogenesis. In the third line of research new MRI sequences are developed for molecular MR imaging with special focus on imaging the mouse heart.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
