Prof Schneider is a major driving force in the development and application of experimental cardiac imaging methods in Oxford. He co-directs the BMRU (British Heart Foundation Experimental Magnetic Resonance Unit) – a state of the art in vivo MRI facility at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics. The BMRU aims to develop novel, fast, high-resolution MRI and MRS (magnetic resonance spectroscopy) methods that can be applied to define function, structure and viability of the heart.
