Care & Cure Science Café

On the 14th of Januari, from 15:00 until 16:00, the next Care & Cure Science Café will be held!

C3Te has invited Dr. Irena Zivkovic to talk about “Ultra-High Field MRI – How high can we go?”

Irena Zivkovic – Integrated Circuits (IC) and Electromagnetics (EM) group of Electrical Engineering.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most versatile medical imaging platform that provides superior soft tissue contrast for both body and brain imaging. It has become a favorite tool in the research settings, especially within neuroscience, because it can map not only the anatomy but also neuronal activation and function without the use of radiation. Scientists have worked on increasing the sensitivity of MRI, image contrast and spatial resolution. One obvious way to increase resolution is to increase the spin polarization via increasing the static magnetic field B0 in MRI. However, a consequence of a larger static magnetic field B0 is a higher Larmor frequency and a shorter wavelength. This increased frequency complicates RF electronics and detector design and therefore the technology developed for lower fields such as 3 Tesla is difficult to adapt and transfer directly to the ultra-high field 7 Tesla. This talk will discuss some of my recent developments of the RF technology that allowed high-resolution high-SNR ultra-high field imaging at 7T. I will also present my contributions to the B0 field shimming at 9.4T MRI.

Due to the Corona situation the Care & Cure Science Café will be in the form of a webinar (participants will receive the MS Teams link on the day of the webinar).

6th GMM + (de-)constitution drink M.A. Eir

On Tuesday, the 16th of November, our 6th General Members Meeting will take place. This GMM will start at 20.00 in Flux 0.150 (time and location have changed). We expect to be done with the GMM at around 21:00.  Unfortunately, due to the new Covid-19 regulations, the (de-)constitution of our new and old board with a drink in Het Walhalla has been canceled. We will try to find a new date sometime in the future.

The Board suggests the following agenda:

    1. Opening
    2. Determining agenda
    3. Mail in/out
    4. Announcements
    5. Minutes 5th GMM
    6. Budget 2021-2022
    7. Annual report
    8. Election Board 2021-2022
    9. Discharge Alex and Majo + installation Board 2021-2022
    10. Any other business
    11. Reports and queries
    12. Closing

If there are any further questions, please don’t hesitate to send an e-mail to board@ma-eir.nl. We hope to see you all there!

Eir Lunch – 19 October 2021

Are you interested in the ‘Care & Cure’ track? Have you heard of Eir?
We are a master association that focuses on students interested in the area of ‘Care & Cure’.
We organize lunch lectures, excursions, and more with companies and institutions like Philips, Catherina Ziekenhuis, and Neways.
If you are interested, we welcome you, both masters and bachelors, to our interest lunch on the 19th of October at 12:30!

5th GMM M.A. Eir

On Wednesday, the 22nd of September, our 5th General Members Meeting will take place. This GMM will be held online through MS Teams and will mainly cover the financials for the upcoming year.

The Board suggests the following agenda:

    1. Opening
    2. Determining agenda
    3. Mail in/out
    4. Announcements
    5. Minutes 4th GMM
    6. Financial result 2020/2021 + budget 2021/2022
    7. Any other business

We want you!

We are looking for new board members!  Are you interested in connecting with lots of different companies, organizations, and interesting individuals in the medical technology sector? Do you want to get better at organizing events? Or are you just fascinated by finances? You can learn these skills, and so many more, by doing a board year with us!

A board year at Eir is part-time, this means there’s a lot of flexibility. On average you will spend 4 hours a week on board-related tasks. These tasks can be anything, but all come down to making our association the best it can be!

If you’re interested in hearing more about this, please subscribe below! We’ll organize an info-lunch for those interested.  If you’d like more details beforehand, please send us an e-mail or contact one of the board members individually!
