Prof. Penny Gowland

Penny is based at the Sir Peter Mansfield Magnetic Resonance Centre in Nottingham, where she conducts research in magnetic resonance imaging. She is particularly interested in quantitative MRI and the capabilities of functional and anatomical ultra-high field MRI in neuroscience.

The Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre

The Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre is an interdisciplinary, cross-faculty centre for innovative imaging in experimental and translational medicine, bringing together researchers who develop new medical imaging techniques with clinicians and scientists who use them.

We are interested both in the dynamics of normal development from pregnancy, through childhood and adolescence to adulthood and old age, as well as in the long-term consequences of various environmental events that occur before birth but “program” the brain and body for the rest of life.

We hope that this work will lead to new discoveries relevant for disorders of the brain, such as addiction or depression, and the body, such as obesity or hypertension.
