CardioPulmonary Imaging (CPI) Lab

The CPI lab is directed by Dr. Qing Zou and it works closely with a cross-disciplinary team (clinicians, scientists, fellows) to develop and translate novel MRI techniques for cardiopulmonary MRI for patients with congenital and acquired heart diseases. The research involves different aspects of MRI, including image acquisition and reconstruction, post-processing, quantitative image analysis, pre-clinical investigation, and clinical translation and evaluation. The lab has access to a cardiac-dedicated clinical 1.5T scanner (Philips), a research-dedicated low-field 0.55T MR scanner (Siemens), three research-dedicated 3T scanners (Philips, Siemens, GE). The lab also has access to a high-field 7T research scanner (Philips) for research on the high-field scanner. Some of the scanners also have the capability to do multi-nuclear imaging.

CDRC - Foster Lab

We investigate how the immune system and gut microbiota influence brain function and behavior. We use molecular, behavioral, anatomical, and immunological approaches in the lab. In parallel, we collaborate with clinical groups to examine the role of inflammatory and gut-brain mediators in psychiatric illness.

The Foster Lab research program represents a “best in class” translational research approach in an enriched, multidisciplinary environment. Foster's academic activities include a strong translational research program, a comprehensive teaching portfolio, science outreach, contribution to local, national, and international peer review and knowledge translation.
