Background and activities
May-Britt Tessem is currently a research scientist working in the MR Cancer Group at ISB, NTNU. Her main research field is in MR related projects concerning prostate cancer, both ex vivo high-resolution magic angle spinning (HR-MAS) on tissue samples, in vivo multiparametric MRI/MRS and MR metabolomics on biofluids. Other interests are gene expression and immunohistochemistry related to prostate cancer research.
