Network Science Institute: QUTE-CE MRI: A New Approach to Quantitative Vascular Clinical Imaging
Title: QUTE-CE MRI: A New Approach to Quantitative Vascular Clinical ImagingSpeaker: Srinivas Sridhar, University Distinguished Professor of Physics, Department of Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering, Northeastern UniversityDate: Wednesday, February 20, 2019Time: 2:00pm to 3:00pmLocation: 11th floor, 177 Huntington Ave, Boston MA, 02115AbstractWe have developed a new breakthrough method of Quantitative MRI called QUTE-CE MRI. We are currently running the first-in-human clinical trial at MGH and many more are planned. The method leads to angiograms of unprecedented clarity and definition. Furthermore it is quantitative, leading to the first absolute human cerebral blood volume maps, which can be correlated with neurological conditions.Supported by NIHAbout the SpeakerSrinivas Sridhar is University Distinguished Professor of Physics at Northeastern University, and Lecturer on Radiation Oncology, Harvard Medical School. He is the Director and Principal Investigator of several multi-M$ national programs: “Nanomedicine Academy” funded by the National Science Foundation; and “CaNCURE: Cancer Nanomedicine Coops for Undergraduate Research and Education” funded by the National Cancer Institute. He is the founding director of the Electronic Materials Research Institute, an interdisciplinary center with research and education thrusts in nanomedicine and nanomaterials. From 2004 to 2008 he served as Vice Provost for Research at Northeastern University, overseeing the University’s research portfolio. An elected Fellow of the American Physical Society, Sridhar’s current areas of research are nanomedicine and nanophotonics. His paper on flat lens imaging published in Nature in 2003 was selected by the journal Science as among the Breakthroughs of the Year. He has published more than 200 articles on his work in nanomedicine, neurotechnology, nanomaterials, quantum chaos, superconductivity and collective excitations in materials. His research projects in nanomedicine and neurotechnology are funded by the NSF, NIH, DOD and foundations.
