Hyperpolarized metabolic imaging will revolutionize how we study and manage diseases. My lab explores new hyperpolarized imaging contrast agents, investigates potential applications in cancer, aging and cardiac research, and develops multinuclear MR techniques to advance hyperpolarized imaging for translational research. The Hyperpolarized Imaging Lab is a new facility in the Martinos Center in Charlestown, with two brand-new next generation hyperpolarizers funded by an NIH High-end Instrumentation grant. We are looking forward to working with future physician-scientists with expertise in chemistry, biology, metabolism, NMR/MRI, RF coils, imaging analysis, animal handling, or pharmacology. MRI, spectroscopic imaging, dynamic nuclear polarization, chemical formulation. Chemistry lab work, assisting contrast agent development, operation of hyperpolarizers, animal handling, RF coil construction, assisting MRI scans, data entry, MRI data processing, literature search, presentations, and reporting. We welcome students with talent and skills in various areas, such as chemistry lab skills, animal handling, NMR/MRI, RF coils, image processing, Matlab coding, or python programming.
