内容:

Biography: My research interest over the past 14 years has focused on developing novel in vivo MRI methodologies to study various human diseases such as cancer and stroke. I have a strong background in MRI physics. As a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Johns Hopkins University, I developed the non-invasive blood flow and blood volume MRI techniques for functional MR studies of the brain. My recent work is on the development of the novel chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) technology. Together with my colleagues, we laid the groundwork for the CEST theoretical understanding and developed many key technologies for in vivo CEST imaging on animals and humans. Particularly, we invented the APT approach for brain pH imaging and tumor protein imaging. My initial paper on brain pH imaging was published in Nature Medicine in 2003 and my most recent paper on tumor treatment effects was published in Nature Medicine in 2011. I am most excited about the availability of this proposed PET-MR scanner which will nicely complement my research interests in the field of cacer biology and treatment in rodent models brain cancer
