hMRI: Non-Invasive In-Vivo Histology using Magnetic Resonance Imaging
June 26 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Dr. Nico Scherf studied Medical Informatics and Computer Science at the University of Leipzig. He did his PhD in Bioinformatics/Medical Biometry at the TU Dresden (Institute for Medical Informatics and Biometry) where he worked on Cell Tracking and Data Visualisation for Stem Cell Biology. Nico has been a PostDoc in Jan Huisken’s lab at the MPI CBG in Dresden from 2013 to 2016 where he focused on data analysis for early zebrafish development and scientific data visualisation and worked with Jan on the concept of a “smart and gentle microscope”. Since 2017 he is a PostDoc at the Department of Neurophysics at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig working on multi-scale data analysis and Machine Learning for “in vivo histology using MRI”. Nico’s main interests are Data Analysis, Visualisation, Artificial Intelligence, Computational Neuroscience and Theoretical Biology.
