Jerome R. Singer has died

EECS and Biophysics Prof. Emeritus Jerome "Jay" R. Singer passed away on July 30, 2019 at age 97.   He became a pioneer in the field of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) when he and two of his students co-created the first practicable MRI apparatus (then called Nuclear Magnetic Resonance - NMR) which was used to directly image blood flow in arteries and veins.  Singer's career at Berkeley as a professor of engineering science spanned 25 years.  He was also an Adjunct Professor of Radiology at UCSF and helped to found eight companies.  Singer had published more than 100 scientific papers and two books, and had been awarded over 20 patents.   Memorial services will be held in October in Berkeley.  For information regarding the date, time and location, please contact singer@singersf.com
