Michael Garwood is a professor at the University of Minnesota. He has a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California Santa Cruz (1985). Over the past 3 decades, his research group has developed cutting-edge magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS) techniques and exploited them in studies of brain, cancer, and diabetes. His current research is focused on developing MRI technologies to make performing MRI scanning feasible with compact, lightweight magnets. A goal is to make MRI scanners in the future that are easily transported and sited, to increase their accessibility for people who need them.
