The Department of Medical Imaging is excited and honored to have two new faculty members - Andrew Karellas, PhD, DABR, FAAPM, FACR, and Srinivasan Vedantham, PhD - to lead a program to develop the next generation of CT scanners for human imaging.
Professor Harrison Barrett has received a $2.5 M Grant from the NIBIB to continue the work supported by an R01 that has been continuously funded since 1990 and included a ten-year period NIH MERIT award.
Russell Witte, PhD, (Department of Medical Imaging )and Hao Xin, PhD, (Electrical and Computer Engineering Department) have been awarded a $1.44 million grant from the DOD for their research entitled Integrated Platform for Spectroscopic Thermoacoustic Imaging and Focused Microwave Therapy of the Breast.
Dr. Lars Furenlid and a team of collaborators have been awarded a grant from the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB). The project, titled ADAPTISPECT-C: A NEXT-GENERATION, ADAPTIVE BRAIN-IMAGING SPECT SYSTEM FOR DRUG DISCOVERY AND CLINICAL IMAGING, aims at leading the way in understanding the human brain by enabling the development of biomarkers with unprecedented specificity for mapping neuroreceptors and proteinopathies associated with disease and dementia.
