Our work focuses on developing new imaging methodologies and applying these methodologies to improve our understanding of human tissue function. A major emphasis of our work is to identify subtle changes in physiology (e.g., biomarkers) that portend onset of diseases such as cancer, stroke, and dementia. The long-term goal is to use these biomarkers to titrate personalized therapies for patients.

Our lab is supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and National Institute of Nursing Research), American Heart Association, Lipedema Foundation, and Radiological Society of North America.
