This facility is the home to five high field solution NMR spectrometers ranging from 500 MHz to 800 MHz and a Solid State 600 MHz DNP system, primarily in support of studies of macromolecular structure, function and dynamics.
The Bowen Lab focuses on the development of hybrid positron emission tomography (PET) (e.g. PET-CT and PET-MR) tools to enable precision imaging for the care and study of oncology, neurology, and cardiology patients.
The BRAIN lab, short for Brain Aging, Injury, and Modulation Lab, has two lines of research in the area of aging and neurodegenerative diseases. The lab investigates the later-in-life effects of traumatic brain injury, which involves understanding the potential risk associated with developing dementia and the underlying biological pathways. The lab also studies the effects of noninvasive brain stimulation in Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders with the goal of informing the development of new treatments.
The Burgess lab uses Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry in conjunction with stable isotope (non-radioactive) tracers to study how metabolic flux is altered by disease, pharmacology, or targeted genetic interventions.
The Concussion, Acquired Brain Injury, and Neurodegeneration (CABIN) Laboratory, led by Kristin Wilmoth, Ph.D., investigates best practices for assessment and treatment of concussion and more severe traumatic brain injury, other acquired brain injuries such as stroke, and neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's disease.
The Collaborative for Advanced Clinical Techniques in UltraSound (CACTUS) constitutes a group of like-minded physicians, scientists, and technical experts dedicated to the advancement of clinical imaging, technical and translational research, and image-guided intervention in ultrasound.
