Welcome to the British & Irish Chapter of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. The creation of the British Chapter was formally approved by the Board of Trustees of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine on 19 September 1994. Our main activity is the organisation of scientific meetings. In January 2009 a New Initiative Fund was created, please see the information below.

New Initiative & Public Engagement Fund

Applications are invited from Full Members for funding to support the hosting of national educational or research meetings on subjects of interest to the British & Irish Chapter, or to support public engagement activities. The funding is intended to facilitate initiatives that will lead to new activity in the magnetic resonance field.

Examples would include a specialist study group or an advanced training course. Applications for up to £2000 maximum in total in any calendar year will be considered although it is expected that most individual applications will be for substantially smaller amounts. Applications should describe the proposed activity and its relevance to the British & Irish Chapter ISMRM, and include costing. Please send applications to the Secretary. Applications will be assessed by the committee, and successful applicants will be expected to produce a brief report of the activity.

Mansfield Research Innovation Award

The Mansfield Research Innovation Award helps to enable top post-doc members of the British & Irish Chapter working in the areas of neurology, cancer, interventional radiology, molecular imaging, physics or engineering, to attend the annual ISMRM meeting. The aim of the award is to support ISMRM members who are too senior to qualify for trainee awards, but too junior to have established posts. The scheme is expected to be run again for the 2019 meeting.
