Compact CV

Leif Schröder studied Physics in Göttingen and Heidelberg where he was also working at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) to obtain a Diploma in Physics with studies on in vivo NMR spectroscopy in 2001. Afterwards, research of his PhD project focused on quantum mechanical fine structure of in vivo NMR spectra which he finished in 2003.
He stayed with the DKFZ until leaving for the University of California at Berkeley with an Emmy Noether fellowship from the German Research Foundation in 2005. During his four year stay in Berkeley, Leif Schröder worked on novel MR imaging techniques based on hyperpolarized xenon biosensors.
He finally returned to Germany in July 2009 with an Emmy Noether fellowship from the German Research Foundation. After leading the ERC Starting Grant Project BiosensorImaging at the FMP from 2009-2015 he is now heading the Molecular Imaging Group.
