Otto Roth Award 2014

  • Gleich, Bernhard (Award Recipient)

Prize: Awards of the University of Luebeck

General Description

Dr. rer. nat. Bernhard Gleich is awarded for his outstanding PhD thesis "Principles and Applications of Magnetic Particle Imaging".
In his work, he presents a new imaging method that determines the three-dimensional distribution of magnetic material (especially nanoparticles) with high spatial and temporal resolution. Based on the basic physical properties of the method, known as Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI), its suitability for medical imaging in particular was investigated and some potential fields of application were identified. By setting up a small test system, Dr. Gleich and his colleagues were able to confirm some of the theoretical predictions.

Dr. Bernhard Gleich, born in Augsburg in 1969, studied physics at the University of Ulm from 1991 to 1996. He currently works as a research associate at Philips Technologie GmbH in Hamburg. The work was done in cooperation between Philips and the Institute of Medical Engineering under supervision of Professor Dr. Buzug.

The Otto Roth Award is the Medical Faculty`s annual award for an outstanding doctoral thesis donated by the Society of the University`s Alumni with an amount of 2.500 Euros.
It is named after Professor Otto Roth (1863-1944), the University`s first specialized surgeon. He became head of the Clinic of Surgery in Luebeck`s General Hospital (1897-1933) and collaborated with Heinrich Dräger (1847-1917) for the development of the world world-famous Dräger-Roth anaesthetic apparatus, allowing the thrive of modern anaesthesiology.
