Toronto At the ISMRM Annual Meeting in Toronto, no fewer than 3 group members received awards:
Mitra Tavakkoli won the ISMRM Research Exchange Grant , which she will use to visit the Spinoza Centre and the Amsterdam UMC to work on ‘Recurrent Inference Machine in the application of 3T hyperpolarized 129Xe ventilation MRI and 7T liver proton MRI‘.
Emma Brouwer received a poster award for her abstract on ‘Proprioceptive engagement in the human cerebellum using 7T-fMRI‘ at the Ultra-High Field Study Group business meeting.
Nikos Priovoulos received the Philips Brain Connectivity Award for his work on ‘Isolating the arterial blood volume change to probe fMRI spatial specificity‘.

In 2023, our Radiology paper "High-Resolution Motion-corrected 7.0-T MRI to Derive Morphologic Measures from the Human Cerebellum in Vivo" was highlighted with an editorial .

London In 2022, we returned to live conferences with a flourish. At the ISMRM meeting in London in June 2022, the Ultra-High Field Study group organised a poster pitch session for selected abstracts.
Wietske Zuiderbaan received a poster awardfor her pitch of "Retinotopic connectivity in the cerebellum for different cognitive states."
Nikos Priovoulos pitched "Combining Arterial Blood Contrast with BOLD improves fMRI laminar specificity." and won his category poster award.

Lisbon Two prizes for cerebellar presentations were won at the UHF workshop in Lisbon:
Nikos Priovoulos received an award for his presentation on "Ultra-high field motion-corrected MRI can visualize the mesoscale organization of the cerebellum."
Emma Brouwer received an award for her work on "A separation between motor and sensory somatotopic maps in the human cerebellum.".

In 2020, I was elected board member of the ISMRM study group Current Issues in Brain Function. Board members are elected for a 4 year period, including time as secretary, vice-chair and chair. The study group organising (Virtual) meetings and advocates brain function initiatives within ISMRM.

In 2019, I received an NWO Vidi grant for the project "New dimensions in human cerebellar MRI". This grant allowed me to form my own group at the Spinoza Centre.

In 2018, the Spinoza Centre was awarded a KNAW research grant to fund the linescanning project. We established and improved linescanning in humans, and aim to use this in neuroscientific experiments.

With Matthan Caan as first author, we won the Philips Brain Connectivity Award for the 2018 ISMRM abstract "MP2RAGEME: T1, T2* and QSM mapping in one sequence at 7 Tesla."

In 2017, the Spinoza Centre received an NWO Aspasia grant. The postdoc working on this grant uses high-resolution functional MRI to investigate cerebellar function.

My cerebellar research line started with a Swiss National Science Foundation project grant for “Cerebellar somatotopy with ultra-high field fMRI” in 2014.
