centerledere Jan Henrik Ardenkjær-Larsen, Danmarks Tekniske Universitet.The opening of the DNRF Center of Excellence number 100, HYPERMAG, was celebrated at an official event on October 7th, 2015 at the Technical University of Denmark.

Under the leadership of Professor Jan Henrik Ardenkjær-Larsen, the research conducted at the Center for Hyperpolarization in Magnetic Resonance (HYPERMAG) will make it possible to detect molecules at the base level and chemical reactions and metabolic processes at the cell level, thereby paving the way for new possibilities within cancer research and diagnostics, among others.

Also in attendance at the opening was Managing Director of GE Healthcare, Jonathan Murray, who has collaborated with professor Ardenkjær-Larsen for some time and who, in his speech, highlighted the exciting opportunities within pre-clinical research and medical innovation that will result from the center’s work.
