BACKGROUNDDr. Claudia Lenz studied physics at the University of Basel and graduated in 2008. In 2011, she completed her Ph.D. in biophysics at the University Hospital of Basel working on MRI physics. She then was employed as a medical physicist in radiation oncology and passed the exams to become a board certified medical physicist. Currently, Claudia works as a post-doc at the University Hospital of Psychiatry in Basel. Her main interest is translational research in brain MRI to bridge the gap between basic imaging physics and clinical needs in neuropsychiatry.
