MRI Research Amsterdam UMC

Bram Coolen

Assistant professor

I studied Biomedical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology (2000-2007), where I did my MSc at the Biomedical NMR group of prof. Klaas Nicolay. I then continued my PhD (2007-2012) in the same group where I developed novel quantitative MRI methods for mouse cardiac applications. In 2012, I joined the Radiology department of the Academic Medical Center (AMC) in Amsterdam as a PostDoc, where I developed novel clinical MRI methods for imaging of atherosclerosis. In 2016, I became assistant professor at the Preclinical & Translational MRI group of the Biomedical Engineering and Physics @ Amsterdam UMC, continuing the development of different kinds of Magnetic Resonanance Imaging (MRI) tools in both the clinical and preclinical setting with focus on cardiovascular diseases. Besides research, I also love to teach basic MRI physics and applications to both physics and medical students at the BSc, MSc and PhD level.
