Dr. Matt Rosen is a physicist with experience as a tool-builder for NMR and MRI, and his work bridges the spectrum from fundamental physics to applied bioimaging work. He established the Low-Field MRI and Hyperpolarized Media Laboratory at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging to focus on the continued development of new hyperpolarization methods and MRI-based tools. Dr. Rosen leads an effort to rethink conventional approaches to MRI scanner construction, and develops tools and techniques for robust low-magnetic-field implementations of MRI focused on brain imaging, including new opportunities provided by free-radical injury markers paired with in vivo Overhauser DNP at low magnetic field.
