Christian Wachinger

I am heading the laboratory for Artificial Intelligence in Medical Imaging. I have previously completed post-doctoral training at the Medical Vision Group in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab at MIT and the Lab for Computational Neuroimaging, Department of Neurology at Harvard medical school. I received my PhD and Diploma from the Computer Science Department at TU M√ľnchen.
