Submit your Research Project now


In the light of the ISMRM 2023 in Toronto we are pleased to invite scientists to submit their research project for the Bruker MRI Award 2023.

Authors may submit one Power Point slide per study, which summaries their project using the template below. The deadline for abstract submission is January 31, 2023.

When preparing your project, please include the following information:

  • Short descriptive title
  • Rationale of the research (Purpose, why is this interesting?)
  • Short description of the animal model and systems used (Methods)
  • Key findings and insights (Outcomes)
  • Future direction of study/comparison with previous methods/enduring challenges (Relevance/Perspective)
  • List of authors (including an e-mail address for direct contact) in the courtesy note.
  • Please enter all relevant acquisition parameters and methods/materials/animals used in the comments section of the PowerPoint slide as a reference.

Graphical elements (MR images, spectra, result diagrams, photos etc.,) should be included as JPEG or TIF format with a minimal resolution of 300 DPI, as animated GIF movie or as embedded movie file (If a WMV file is used you can ensure compatibility of the video with the inbuilt compatibility function in PowerPoint 2010 or later: File > Info > Optimize Compatibility).

Presentations and materials may be arranged by Bruker based upon the graphics and text received. We reserve the right to select and publish the data and images without further notice.
We greatly appreciate receiving any material you choose to send.

By submitting your project, you agree that your data and images are used at the Bruker booth at conferences, on, in Bruker product brochures, and during oral presentations given by Bruker personnel. We assure you that all authors and the institution will be acknowledged in all instances.

After your successful submission, you will receive written confirmation by e-mail.
