Wilbert Bartels graduated in Applied Physics at Eindhoven University of Technology in 1997. In 2001 he received his PhD at Utrecht University after defending his thesis entitled "Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Guidance and Evaluation of Endovascular Therapy". In May 2018 Wilbert succeeded Max Viergever, professor emeritus, as director of the Image Sciences Institute. Wilbert has supervised 19 PhD candidates and many MSc students, and has (co-)authored over 100 peer reviewed journal papers. He is the director of the PhD programme Medical Imaging of the Graduate School of Life Sciences at Utrecht University/UMC Utrecht. He also leads the MSc progamme Medical Imaging offered at UMC Utrecht in close collaboration with Eindhoven University of Technology. He acts as a coordinator and lecturer in several courses in the field of medical imaging in general and MRI physics in particular. His main research interests are in the field of MRI physics, with a focus on quantitative MRI and on MRI methods for planning, guidance and evaluation of therapy, in particular MRI-guided high intensity focused ultrasound therapy.
