In another life, I was a Member of the Beckman Institute in the Biological Imaging Center at the California Institute of Technology from 1991-2016 and recently moved to Keck School of Medicine. I have more than 30 years experience in the theory, hardware/software development and application of high resolution preclinical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). I have an extensive history of supervising successful Post Doctoral fellows, graduate students, undergraduates, and technicians. Animal models under study have included: embryonic development, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s Disease, cancer, and substance abuse. I also have a significant involvement in several multimodal imaging efforts including contrast agent developments and implementation of a dual scanner that simultaneously records both Positron Emission Tomographs and Magnetic Resonance Images.
