Principal Investigator

Jennifer A. McNab, Ph.D., Assistant Professor

Department of Radiology, Stanford University

Email >>

Dr. McNab is an MRI physicist with a focus on neuroimaging techniques. Her research involves the development of MRI pulse sequences that provide new ways of probing the human brain. She has extensive experience with the most advanced MRI technology, including the world’s strongest human-MRI gradients (300 mT/m), highly parallelized phased-array RF coils (64-channels) and ultra-high-magnetic field (7T). She supervises graduate students from Departments of Electrical Engineering, BioEngineering and Neuroscience at Stanford. Read more >>

Postdoctoral Fellow

Christoph Leuze, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Fellow

Department of Radiology, Stanford University

Email >>

Dr. Leuze studied physics at the university of Leipzig in Germany and as an exchange student at the Chiba university in Japan. During his Ph.D. thesis at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, he worked on high-resolution diffusion MRI measurements in the cortex. His current research focuses on brain connectivity measurements using diffusion MRI at ultra-high fields and increasing the feasibility of such measurements by histological validation.
