Cris LaPierre Is an excellent postdoc
Martinos Center researcher Cris LaPierre has received the MGPA (Mass General Postdoc Association) Postdoc Recognition Award. The award was designed to "recognize MGH postdoctoral fellows who promote excellence and collegiality in the lab." He and other recipients were honored at the MGPA's Annual Meeting last week.
Cris is in his third year as a postdoc with both the Wald and the Low Field Imaging (Matt Rosen) labs. His projects have focused on the design, construction and testing of multi-channel parallel imaging arrays for very low-field strengths. The goal of these projects is to obtain clinically relevant in vivo images of the brain for diagnosis of traumatic brain injury in a potentially transportable and rapidly deployable imaging system.
Congrats to Cris!
