This week David Boas will receive the Britton Chance Biomedical Optics Award. In a wide-ranging conversation he talks about meeting Chance more than two decades ago, about the experiments that proved instrumental in the development of biomedical optics, and about why he was slightly anxious about getting on a boat with the illustrious researcher.
Martinos Center News
Researchers at the MGH Martinos Center and the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT, are, for the first time, applying techniques developed by the Human Connectome Project to a specific disease population.
The Martinos Center’s Danhong Wang and Hesheng Liu and colleagues have reported a technique that could usher in a new era of clinical fMRI by providing a unique, personalized map of the different functional areas of an individual’s brain.
Drawing from a unique imaging data collection, researchers have gained new insight into the neurodegenerative disorders.
A team of investigators at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at the Massachusetts General Hospital has reported an approach to low-cost, high-performance MRI that could allow researchers and physicians to overcome many of the limitations of conventional MRI scanners.
We know from research, and from everyday life, that an itch can be contagious. What we don’t fully understand, from a neuroscience perspective, is why.
The probe could help doctors quickly find and treat further clots in the wake of a stroke, by way of a single, whole-body PET scan.
Two young researchers — Christin Sander and Berkin Bilgic — were recognized for their already-considerable contributions to science when they were named Junior Fellows by the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine.
A new technology developed by the Martinos Center’s Qianqian Fang and colleagues has been named a leading innovation in Reimagining Global Health, the inaugural report of the Innovation Countdown 2030 initiative.
MRI has revolutionized our understanding of the brain in both health and disease. But because of its speed, it doesn’t always meet the needs of today’s cutting-edge applications. Kawin Setsompop is looking to change this.
