Benjamin Tendler

Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow

I am a physicist working in the field of neuroscience. My research focuses on developing new techniques to identify processes in brain disease using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

My fellowship aims to develop an imaging technique called 'steady-state diffusion' MRI. Resulting images are sensitive to the tiny motions of water within and surrounding cells, providing insights into brain structure and changes related to disease. To date, I have focused on developing these techniques in the context of post-mortem imaging. For a brief explanation of this work, please see this video.

I am an advocate for open science. I established the Digital Brain Bank, a data release platform providing access to curated, post-mortem neuroimaging datasets associated with University of Oxford researchers.

I am an advocate for research culture. I lead an initiative promoting Lab Handbooks as best practice for research groups to facilitate communication and improve how labs operate. For a brief overview of the initiative, please see this video.

More broadly, I have experience with diffusion imaging, magnetic susceptibility imaging, quantitative MRI and post-mortem investigations.
