Our Research Groups
Our research groups are cross-functional in nature and organized around specific investigational themes, which include the following:
New Probe Evaluation:
The goal of this group is to perform pre-clinical and clinical validation studies of new molecular imaging probes relevant to cardiovascular disease.
The focus of this group is the study of the metabolic-functional relation for myocardial and skeletal muscle in both health and disease.
The goal of this group is to develop new MRI and MRS approaches to quantify key anatomic, physiological, and cellular processes relevant to cardiovascular disease.
The goal of this program is to develop a lung-focused molecular imaging program with tie-ins to oncology translational imaging when imaging of a particular pathway being developed for lung inflammation.
This group provides expertise to perform cardiovascular and pulmonary Phase 0-4 clinical trials that use imaging endpoints.
