Dr. med. Samuel Gröschel

Samuel Gröschel studied medicine at the University of Göttingen and did his medical thesis there with Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Hanefeld about “Virchow-Robin spaces on MRI: observations in healthy and sick children”. The work was supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and carried out in Göttingen and at the Institute of Child Health and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children in London. From 2007 to 2009 he did his pediatric training at the Olgahospital in Stuttgart. Since April 2009 he has been holding a position as research fellow and pediatric trainee at the University Children’s Hospital in Tübingen. His main interests in neuroimaging are leukodystrophies (esp. Metachromatic Leukodystrophy) and the plasticity of the developing brain. Methodologically his research focuses on clinical applications of MR diffusion imaging and tractography of high angular resolution data (HARDI) – in collaboration with Prof. A. Connelly (University of Melbourne) and Dr. D. Tournier (King's College London) – as well as of advanced morphometric analysis techniques. In 2013, he received the young researcher award from the German Society of Neuropediatrics.
