After graduating in physics from Oxford University, Professor Ian Marshall joined Lothian Health Board as a Medical Physicist, working on Physiological Measurement and the development of instrumentation for research studies.
In 1992, he was awarded a PhD for work on non-invasive measurement of airways using an acoustic technique. Since 1991, he has specialised in Magnetic Resonance Imaging, being appointed to the University of Edinburgh in 1996. He was appointed Professor of Magnetic Resonance Physics in 2007 and was Head of Medical Physics & Medical Engineering 2008-2011.
Professor Marshall divides his time between the Brain Research Imaging Centre and the Medical School at Little France, leading a small group of physicists supporting the development of MRI for clinical and preclinical use.
Professor Marshall has served as Treasurer and Membership Secretary of the British Chapter of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM), and served on the Annual Meeting Program Committee of ISMRM 2011-2013. He has hosted annual meetings of BCISMRM, and chaired the Local Organising Committee for the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology conference in 2015. In 2021 he became a Emeritus Chair of Magnetic Resonance Physics.
