Dr. Friedrich Wetterling

Visiting Research Fellow (Pharmacy)


Dr. Friedrich Wetterling has worked in the field of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) since 2005 specialising in Radio-Frequency (RF) resonator development for X-nuclei MRI techniques at the University of Dublin (Trinity College) where he finished his PhD in Physics in 2009. Prior to that he carried out research in the field of bio-electromagnetic source localization at the Biomagnetic Centre Jena for which he received his M.Sc. from the Technical University of Ilmenau in 2005. In 2009, he established the RF Methods and Imaging group at Heidelberg University. Since January 2012, he is appointed Marie Curie Research Fellow at the University of Dublin (Trinity College). His current work focusses on developing new methods and devices for non-invasive 3D scanning.
