Past NMR students
During the history of the Peter S. Allen MR Centre, many students have got their brains - and other body parts - scanned for the sake of research. In the same time, they have somehow managed to learn a lot about the wonderful world of magnetic resonance and, of course, obtained their degree. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of them for the contribution to the science world, the MR research centre and their help in creating the inspiring and enthusiastic atmoshpere. Best wishes whichever way life leads you (as you can see below... it indeed does lead all kinds of ways!)
