Berkin Bilgic

MRI has demonstrated ability to provide exquisite contrast for non-invasive imaging. What limits its efficiency and sensitivity are the tradeoffs between scan time, resolution and signal-to-noise ratio. Dr. Bilgic's research is devoted to breaking this stalemate by developing new acquisition and ...

Anastasia Yendiki

Dr. Anastasia Yendiki's background is in statistical signal and image processing. She received a PhD in Electrical Engineering: Systems from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, where she worked on inverse problems in tomographic reconstruction for nuclear imaging under the supervision of Jef...

TRANSLATE (Translational Research in Radiology)

The TRANSLATE seminar series offers conversations about the latest advances in translational research in radiology, and about the process of translational research itself. Each seminar brings together a physician with particular clinical needs and a researcher developing imaging technologies that...

Social Media

Videos As part of our mission, we are working to disseminate our research to as wide an audience as possible. To this end, we present our social media channels here. The sidebar to the right includes links to the channels as well a Twitter feed and a Newsletter subscription form. Also, we hav...

BrainMap

The BrainMap seminar series is offered by and for researchers using neuroimaging to study brain structure and function. Presented by invited speakers from around the world, as well as by investigators who call the Martinos Center home, the talks cover the gamut of topics - with a particular focus...

Lilianne Mujica-Parodi

Lilianne R. Mujica-Parodi is Director of the Laboratory for Computational Neurodiagnostics (LCNeuro). LCNeuro's research focuses on the application of control systems engineering and dynamical systems to imaging-derived time series, at all scales: from human fMRI, M/EEG, fNIRS to rodent LFP and c...

Creativity and Diversity in the Martinos Center

Martinos Center executive director David Vaughn recently sat down to talk about his work in the Center, and about what makes the Martinos so special. Hear what he had to say about creativity and diversity in the Center in the video below. In our humble opinion, he couldn't be more right! ...

Why & How

The Why & How seminar series is designed to introduce research assistants, graduate students, and postdoctoral and clinical fellows - really, anyone who is interested - to the many tools used in the Center. These include software tools and most of the major imaging modalities wielded by Marti...

AMA @ Martinos: Anastasia Yendiki

The 2022 meeting of the Organization of Human Brain Mapping (OHBM), to be held June 19-22 in Glasgow, Scotland, will feature keynote lectures by no fewer than two Martinos Center researchers: Anastasia Yendiki and Jon Polimeni. In anticipation of the meeting, we approached Anastasia about putting...

Science on Tap

Science on Tap is a weekly Friday afternoon social where members of the Martinos community gather to eat, maybe have a libation or two, and get to know each other's work a little better. Every meeting features a 10 to 15 minute talk by a Martinos investigator about his or her latest research, inc...

Christopher Nguyen

The Nguyen lab focuses on the development and clinical application of novel imaging techniques to characterize the cardiovascular system including MRI, optical, and PET. Our primary research interests fall into four general areas: (1) bio- inspired design for heart assisted devices (Science Robot...

With New PET Probe, Researchers Image Fibrosis of the Lungs

The MGH Martinos Center's Pauline Désogère and colleagues have described a new positron emission tomography (PET) probe that can help to advance noninvasive diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis. Reported in a Science Translational Medicine paper published online today, the probe enables detection and ...

Nanodiamond-enhanced MRI: A Dazzling New Approach to Imaging

Nanodiamonds – synthetic industrial diamonds only a few nanometers in size – have recently attracted considerable attention because of the potential they offer for the targeted delivery of vaccines and cancer drugs as well as for other uses. Thus far, options for imaging nanodiamonds have been li...

Jason Stockmann

Jason Stockmann, PhD, is broadly interested in magnetic resonance imaging hardware and acquisition methods for improving data quality for both structural and functional imaging. He has worked on diverse MRI scanners ranging in field strength by two orders of magnitude, from low-field (80 mT) to u...
