Vlassenko/Goyal Lab

The Vlassenko/Goyal Lab aims to measure changes in the human brain from various perspectives and investigate why these changes might occur. By understanding this better, we hope to develop better diagnostics and treatments for the aging human brain.

Our People

The lab, led by Andrei Vlassenko, MD, PhD, and Manu Goyal, MD, is home to leading researchers in the field of human brain imaging.


We advance and use human brain imaging tools, including PET and MRI, to understand brain metabolism and its structure, and to determine how this changes with age.
