And the Winners for the Advanced Multimodal Neuroimaging Training Program Are...

January 9, 2014

The Martinos Center has announced the five Research Fellow winners from the latest round of the pilot funding competition supported by the AMNTP.

The AMNTP - the Advanced Multimodal Neuroimaging Training Program - was designed to train future scientists in an interdisciplinary fashion, providing broad-based knowledge and skill sets that prepare them for career paths in neuroimaging research that crosses traditionally separate physical science and neuroscience domains. The goal is to produce a new cadre of scientists with wide-ranging background and skills needed to make major contributions in neuroimaging. 

The winners and the titles of their projects are:

1. Gaëlle Desbordes
High-resolution functional mapping of somatotopic organization in the human insula

2. Constanza Gianni
Iron and its correlates in the cortex of patients with multiple sclerosis by quantitative susceptibility mapping at 7Tesla and[11C]-PBR28PET-MRI

3. Kourosh Jafari-Khouzani
Validation of MRI upsampling using real clinical data

4. Kun-Eek Kil
New PET Radiotracer for Neuroinflammation Based on Oxidative Stress

5. Changning Wang
MR-PET Imaging of Histone Deacetylases in the brain with [11C]MARTIONSTAT
