Dylan Tisdall receives K99 "Young Investigator" award
The Martinos Center's Dylan Tisdall has received an NIH K99 award. The award is designed to help young investigators transition from the mentored to the independent phase of their career.
In his project, "High-Speed Motion-Corrected Pediatric Neuroimaging with MRI," Dylan will seek to improve the quality of pediatric and fetal neuroimaging MRI data acquired without sedation and anesthesia. This will enable a reduction in the need for sedation and, in turn, the cost and risk of these studies, and increase availability of MRI for fetal and pediatric imaging. He will achieve this goal using novel MR technology with new time-efficient and motion-resistant sequences.
Congratulations to Dylan!
