Research Labs

  • The Laboratory for Functional Optical Imaging develops novel biomedical imaging and microscopy techniques that use optics to capture information about the structure and function of living tissues.

  • LIINC uses principles of reverse “neuro”-engineering to characterize the cortical networks underlying perceptual and cognitive processes, such as rapid decision making, in the human brain.

  • The McIlvain Lab focuses on the development of magnetic resonance elastography (MRE), a noninvasive MRI technique for assessing the mechanical properties of soft tissues.

  • The Medical Imaging Physics Lab focuses on medical image acquisition technique improvement, using physics and engineering concepts and analysis for clinical translational applications.

  • The MR Science Lab pursues translational research in the fields of MRI, spectroscopy (MRS) and spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) to advance their potential for the study of neurodegenerative diseases.

  • Research in the Salvatore lab is focused primarily on pulmonary fibrosis, studying the patterns of fibrosis and the rate of change on chest CT over time.

  • Dr. Diego Jaramillo's lab is applying a novel MR technique, diffusion tensor imaging of the physis and metaphysis, to better understand normal and abnormal bone growth.

  • Dr. Michael Lipton’s lab investigates brain mechanisms of neurobehavioral dysfunction due to injury and disease, and how inter-individual diversity alters these mechanisms and their consequences.

  • Led by Elisa Konofagou, PhD, the Ultrasound Elasticity and Imaging Laboratory develops novel, ultrasound-based techniques for both imaging and therapeutic applications.
