Biographical details

Isabel Dregely is a lecturer in MRI Physics. Her research interest is in using imaging to improve diagnosis and therapy planning in cancer patients. She uses computer simulations, an understanding of MRI signal models and interaction in healthy and cancer tissue to efficiently acquire and accurately extract ‘functional’ information from imaging data to better characterize each patient’s cancer.

Before joining King’s in 2015, she studied physics in Germany, and held research posts in USA (University of New Hampshire, Harvard, University of Virginia and University of California Los Angeles) and Germany (Technical University Munich) in many aspects of MRI research: instrumentation (designing and building RF coils), MR physics, image acquisition including pulse programming, reconstruction, quantitative and multi-parametric post-processing, novel contrast agents (hyperpolarised Xenon) and physiological modelling. As a post-doc in Munich, she worked with the worldwide first installed human whole-body simultaneous PET/MR machine.

She was awarded the ISMRM 2011 W.S.Moore Young Investigator Award and she is Junior Fellow of the ISMRM. She is also a UKRI Future Leaders Fellow.
