Peter Börnert, studied physics at the Technical University of Dresden (Germany) receiving his Diploma degree in 1985. Then he joined the Academy of Sciences (Berlin) where he finished his PhD theses on 19F imaging in perfluorocarbones in 1990, moving after that on a post-doc position at the University of Bremen and worked on ultra-fast TSE imaging.
In 1991, he joined Philips Research Hamburg working on a variety of methodological projects over a broad range of field strengths (0.01 – 7.0 T). He focused on fast and ultra-fast MRI acquisition techniques (EPI, spiral and UTE imaging), on RF pulse design, on parallel reception and parallel transmission. Philips Research promoted him to a Principal Scientist in 2001 being responsible for methodological innovations, supporting pre-clinical evaluation projects and future product integration.

Peter Börnert’s scientific activity has resulted in more than 100 peer-reviews scientific papers, numerous patents and roughly 400 conference abstracts. He had the pleasure to work with many students (master and PhD degree) to support and supervise them. He is an active member of the ISMRM and helped to organise many international workshops and scientific meetings. He became an ISMRM Fellow in 2011.

In May 2012 Peter Börnert became a Professor for experimental clinical MR at the LUMC, a challenge next to his Philips Research obligations. He is working in the Radiology Department of the LUMC and at the Groter centre for high field imaging pursuing different research activities. One direction is obesity imaging to reveal underlying mechanisms and consequences for the heart and the whole body. Another topic is ultra-short and zero TE imaging to visualise tissue components and structures that are invisible to conventional clinical MRI. On top of this he is interested in advanced sampling, motion compensation strategies and quantitative imaging (MR fingerprinting) to improve image quality in high field applications. More recently he started looking into the application of AI to MRI. These activities are conducted in very close collaboration with Groter centre aiming to pave the way for ultra high field clinical MRI to patient’s benefit.
