Board of Trustees of the International Society for Magnetic
Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) is extremely honored to
announce the appointment of
Matt A. Bernstein, Ph.D., as Editor-in-Chief
of our journal Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. Dr.
Bernstein will begin his new role on 1 February 2011. He
will replace Jeffrey L. Duerk, Ph.D., who has served as the
interim Editor-in-Chief since August 2010, succeeding
Michael B. Smith, Ph.D.
In 1985, Dr. Bernstein received his Ph.D. from the
University of Wisconsin-Madison in Theoretical Nuclear
Physics. Since then, Dr. Bernstein has accumulated over 25
years of experience in the field of Magnetic Resonance.
After a post-doctoral fellowship at Madison, he spent 11
years working in industry, focusing on R&D at GE’s Applied
Science Laboratory. Since 1998, Dr. Bernstein has been at
Mayo Clinic, Rochester, where he is a Professor of
Radiologic Physics, and holds appointments in the Department
of Radiology and the Department of Physiology and Biomedical
Dr. Bernstein has been an active member of the ISMRM, and is
a Fellow of the Society. He served as a Study Group Chair,
and has been invited as faculty for 15 presentations at
courses and Study Groups during our Annual Meetings, as well
as at Society workshops and Outreach programs in Asia. For
many years, he has served as a valued reviewer for the

been a member of the Editorial Board of Magnetic
Resonance in Medicine since 2005.
Matt A. Bernstein, Ph.D.
Bernstein has published over 70 peer-reviewed articles, 4
book chapters, and 140 abstracts. His research has covered a
range of areas in Magnetic Resonance, including angiography,
pulse sequence design, safety, and methods for multi-center
trials, especially for the study of Alzheimer’s disease.
He has been granted 33 U.S. patents, and is certified by
the American Board of Medical Physics, for which he
currently serves as co-Director of its MRI program. Dr.
Bernstein has co-authored two books: Handbook of
MRI Pulse Sequences, and Thinking About Equations, A
Practical Guide for Developing Mathematical Intuition in the
Physical Sciences and Engineering.
The ISMRM Board of Trustees is very pleased that Dr.
Bernstein has accepted the position of Editor-in-Chief of
Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and looks forward to his
leadership in the coming years.
